Help me CURE Sarcoma Cancer!
The Karen Wyckoff Rein in Sarcoma Foundation (KWRISF) is a resource for patients and families touched by sarcoma cancers. Sarcomas are an uncommon and often lethal group of bone and soft tissue cancers that may strike children and younger adults, leaving an especially tender heartbreak. Often working in partnership with the University of Minnesota, Rein in Sarcoma (RIS) seeks to fund innovative, collaborative and high-impact research.
KWRISF is the largest and best-known sarcoma foundation in the Upper Midwest. It is a Minnesota Non-Profit tax exempt (501-C-3) organization.
Since its creation in 2001, the foundation has been led by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by the efforts of hundreds of volunteers. KWRISF has reached thousands of people and raised more than $1,000,000.

"Lisa has been a good friend and long-time supporter of Youth Frontiers’ work to build the character of young people through dynamic retreat programs in schools. Crescendo’s generous contributions over the last decade have allowed Youth Frontiers to work with thousands of kids, teaching them the critical values of kindness, courage, respect and responsibility. I have also been honored to be a guest speaker in Lisa’s business class sharing my thoughts on ethical and self-aware leadership for business leaders. Lisa has been present at many of our events as well, introducing her network to our mission. We could not be doing our work without Lisa’s and Crescendo employee support. We as a community are fortunate to have Lisa leading her company with such a spirit of giving and a commitment to making the world a better place."
Joe Cavanaugh, CEO and Founder
"Lisa served as chairperson of Rein in Sarcoma 2008 & 2009, the primary fundraiser of the Karen Wyckoff Rein in Sarcoma Foundation (KWRISF). Not only did she show great organizational and leadership skills she brought a passion and commitment that could only come from someone who has faced sarcoma cancer personally. In this unique role she has became a true inspiration and friend to many sarcoma patients and survivors. Her vision, enthusiasm and dynamism spanned the entire breadth of the event that attracted almost 1,000 people from five states, utilizing over 160 active volunteers and raising over $65,000 for sarcoma research in the Upper Midwest. Her commitment continues both as a KWRISF Board member and as our 2009 Event Chair.
