“Strike Out Cancer”- Celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day - Sunday, June 2, 2019! 

Cancer survivors, their families and friends are invited to a celebration of life during the National Cancer Survivors Day event on Sunday, June 2, 2019.

This annual event is a wonderful day filled with hope, inspiration and friendship as we honor people whose lives have been touched by cancer. The celebration will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 2 at the Rochester International Event Center (located near the airport) at 7333 Airport View Dr. SW, Rochester, Minnesota.

Registration, family activities and live music start at 11 a.m., lunch at 11:45 a.m., followed by a program to honor cancer survivors and their families.

This year’s theme is “Strike Out Cancer” and baseball players from the Rochester Honkers, Rochester Royals and the 1860’s Roosters and Hens will be involved in activities for all ages. Come play catch and get a signed autograph from one of the players! The Honkers mascot, Slider, will be here too!

Wear your favorite baseball team jersey, t-shirt or hat and come ready for a fun time!

The event is sponsored by the André Gauthier Foundation and hosted by Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and the American Cancer Society. Admission is free for cancer survivors and two guests. Additional guests are welcome to attend for a nominal fee of $5 per person.

Reservations are required by May 27, 2018.
