Texas set to Tackle Cancer

Courtesy of my friends over at The Tackling Cancer Foundation


The Tackling Cancer Foundation has been so well supported in Texas, that it is super excited to announce its fall raffle fundraiser!

Proceeds generated will be used to support the Any Baby Can Cancer Foundation in Texas as well as the Vanguard Cancer Research Foundation in California.

“We are really excited to be involved again” said Rick Marshall from the Katy Barbarians Rugby Club in Houston.

“Our rugby club raised several thousand dollars through the first Tackling Cancer fundraiser, and we know this one will be another massive success” enthused Marshall, who is also the President of the Texas Youth Rugby Association (TYRA).

The Tackling Cancer non-profit foundation was created to support leading cancer researchers while promoting safe and active lifestyles for today’s youth through sports. By leveraging the global participation of rugby, the foundation and its donors will help tackle cancer.

The Texas fall raffle will run from September 1st to December 1st, with the drawing taking place on December 15th 2010.

The prizes look sweet!!
The amazing prizes are listed as:

GRAND PRIZE: One (1) prize will be awarded for two (2) round trip airline tickets from Texas (Dallas, Houston or Austin) to Honolulu (HNL) for a fabulous Hawaii vacation including 7day/6nights accommodation and car rental. Certain restrictions and blackout dates apply. Estimated value: $5,000.

FIRST PRIZE: One (1) prize will be awarded for two (2) tickets for a beautiful 5day/6night Mexican Riviera cruise. Departure port is Galveston, Texas. Certain restrictions and blackout dates apply. Estimated value: $1,500.

SECOND PRIZES: Four (4) Canon SD1400 Series digital cameras will be awarded. Estimated value: $250.

Tackling Cancer has run a very successful first raffle in Texas and California earlier this year, with the Grand Prize winners set to enjoy their beautiful Pacific Island vacation in a few months!

California and Iowa are the next two States that will be hosting raffle fundraisers, which will start in mid October. Several other States are looking to do the same, as the news of the Tackling Cancer Foundation spreads throughout the United States.

Organizations that are seeking to raise money for their rugby club while benefiting various cancer charities, are to please contact Tackling Cancer to find out how to get involved.
