Subaru Share the Love

Subaru Share the Love logo
Share the Love Event is November 19, 2020 – January 4, 2021.

Since the first Share the Love Event in 2008, Subaru of America and its retailers have donated more than $176 million to charities. Subaru puts customers in the driver’s seat to designate $250 from a list of charities for each purchase or lease of a Subaru.

Rein in Sarcoma is grateful to be selected by the generous Walser Group for their Walser Subaru Burnsville, MN and Walser Subaru St. Paul, MN locations. This is the fifth consecutive year RIS has been a Walser Subaru hometown charity.

As part of our education and awareness efforts, Rein in Sarcoma will place an information table at the dealerships.

Congratulations to Walser Subaru Burnsville for receiving the 2020 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award for making our community and the world a better place.

We are so grateful for Subaru’s continued support to advance the mission of Rein in Sarcoma.

Boot Camp for Jan Maudlin Sarcoma Scholars

2020-21 Jan Maudlin Sarcoma Scholars

2020-21 Jan Maudlin Sarcoma

Sarcoma cancer medical experts from HealthPartners, Mayo Clinic, and the University of Minnesota came together on October 29, 2020 to provide sarcoma education for the next generation of physicians. Utilizing this new found knowledge, the Jan Maudlin Sarcoma Scholars will not only take on projects, but will educate their peers on sarcoma cancers throughout this year of medical school. The ripple effects of the scholar program are extraordinary!

We are so thankful for the time and energy of medical professionals coming together to educate and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Thank you speakers, students, and Theresa Nace, University of Minnesota Senior Office/Admin Service Supervisor Radiation Oncology, for your work organizing Boot Camp.
