On Thursday, October 5th through Friday, October 6th, the Minnetonka Student Government is hosting their annual Tackle Cancer event. They will be selling t-shirts to raise money for cancer research, encouraging students to wear pink to show support, throwing a pre-game party and much more!
Minnetonka High School students can get shirts and bandannas on Thursday before school and during lunches and on Friday before school (if there are any left). Pink Tonka Strong t-shirts will be sold for $10, bandanas for $3, and Cotton candy - $5 for a large bag and $3 a small bag.
Friday at the High School will be a pink out to show our support for cancer patients. During all student lunches, there will be activities outside (weather permitting) on the patio behind the cafeteria. Activities like guessing games, disc dropping, music, face painting and crafting messages in chalk.
There will be a pre-game party at the Grill and Chill on Friday, October 6th at 6:00pm. Any person wearing a pink Tonka Strong t-shirt will receive a free a hot dog. If you are not wearing a pink Tonka Strong t-shirt, the hotdog will be $2.00. Donations are appreciated and everyone is encouraged to wear pink as the football game following the event is a pink out. During the Grill and Chill there will be face painting and music, and a great opportunity to support all people battling cancer.
The money received through this two day event will be donated to the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund for further cancer research. Minnetonka has been participating in Tackle Cancer for 6 years.
