The Randy Shaver Cancer Research & Community Fund [RSCRCF] supports the cancer community in Minnesota by funding research, prevention, treatment and other programs relating to its cancer community.
Our Celebrity Golf Classic began in 1995, raising $27,000. It has now grown into one of the most successful charitable golf tournaments in the state, raising more than $9 million to date.
With growing support and contributions from so many, the Randy Shaver Cancer Research & Community Fund was formed in 2003 to ensure that all of the money raised through the golf event and other endeavors would be used to fund research and cancer-related projects locally in addition to a variety of other worthy causes each year.
Randy Shaver has been the Sports Director at KARE-11 Television (NBC Affiliate) in Minneapolis/St. Paul since 1994. While his focus has always been on cancer research and the Minnesota cancer community, Randy’s fight became intensely personal when he was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin's Disease after the 1998 tournament. In August of 2018, Randy was diagnosed with Prostate cancer. Randy is now in remission from both Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Prostate cancer.
2021 was a much brighter year for us. In January 2022, we were able to allocate over $780,000 to cancer research and community patient aid programs!
We need to do all we can to support Minnesota's Cancer Community. This year's donations will help us reach our goal of $1 million! Thank you for your steadfast support!
