Join us for the third annual Cruise for a Cause, our largest fundraising event of the year. Mezin-Koats Colon Cancer Research, in partnership with the University of Minnesota, Masonic Cancer Center is thrilled to offer this wonderful evening to promote further discoveries in the fight to end colon cancer. With your help, MKCCR has raised over a half million dollars since its inception, funding three major research projects.

Celebrate the longest day of summer aboard the Majestic Star, a classic and luxurious 100-foot yacht docked in Stillwater, Minnesota. This year boarding begins at 5:30 pm and we've moved the departure time to 6:30 (sharp), easing travel time from the Twin Cities. Our two-and-a-half hour voyage along the beautiful St. Croix River highlights the newly-open St. Croix Crossing Bridge. The cruise includes a buffet dinner, cash bar and updates from researchers and doctors from the U of M on the hard work taking place to end colon cancer.

This year the Cruise is free of charge, but we suggest and appreciate a $75 per person donation. We know our supporters are passionate about this cause so hope you are inspired to donate generously prior to the event. 100% of all donations go directly to the University of Minnesota, Masonic Cancer Center and are 100% tax deductible. Even if you cannot make it to the event, we encourage you to give.
