Varsity Team Rally: GOpher a Cure!

The annual Varsity Team Rally event was created in 2011 to raise money for critical early cancer research at the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota. Since its inception, more than $928K has been raised--well on the way to the goal of $1 million for cancer research by 2020...and gearing us up to reach for our 2nd million!
