I began helping with Rally over a year ago and they have made a significant difference on how we look at childhood cancer to myself, and my entire family. We are touched by the passion in which Rally takes in this cause. It is such a pleasure to help in any capacity they need me or my business. Anyone who is considering helping or donating will find the most amazing enrichment by doing so. I will continue to help with Rally Foundation for many years ahead and challenge all those who can help to help this amazing Foundation....

Rally's mission is to raise funds for childhood cancer research, and everything they do is laser-focused on that mission. The atmosphere in the office is both friendly and professional, and Rally events always have an upbeat, energetic feel. Volunteers and donors want to return again and again. In planning events and in the day to day running of the office, the Rally staff and volunteers are extremely mindful of expenses, and work hard to cut costs and solicit in-kind donations. Rally is also very purposeful when determining which research projects to fund; they want to be sure they are funding the most innovative and promising research. As a monetary donor, as well as a volunteer, I am always confident that my contributions will truly go towards their intended purpose - finding a cure for childhood cancer.

The Rally Foundation is such an inspirational and admirable organization. I can't imagine a better group of people to volunteer with. The great work they do to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research is outstanding! They make such a difference in children's lives, their families lives, and the lives of the volunteers who come in contact with their mission. I am a very vocal advocate for all the Rally Foundation does!

My experience with Rally started when a very dear friend's grandchild was faced with a frightening diagnosis of cancer in her first year of life. She battled the disease for 12 years, and Rally was a tremendous support to her and her family. She was an amazing little girl who touched everyone who knew her, and still does! My background is in the medical field, and I have worked with many non profit organizations---Rally is truly one of the best I have known. They work with an honesty and integrity that is rare, and their focus and dedication to their mission is commendable.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching and hearing the children and their families as they tell their stories, watching the children as they model at Fashion Funds The Cure fund raiser

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find ways to bring more funding, and raise the awareness of what this organization does.

My family has seen first hand the positive impact Rally Foundation has on both childhood cancer patients and their families. Our neighbor's son bravely fought Ewing's Sarcoma and we witnessed the care and support Rally Foundation provided to his family during his battle and after his passing. Every fall, we fondly look forward to the 4 Quarters For Research football game at Pope High School where thousands of dollars are collected by enthusiastic high school students.

I am proud to be associated with The Rally Foundation!

I have had the opportunity to work with the Rally Foundation as a supporter, as well as a Rally Athlete. Rally Foundation truly empowers volunteers across the country to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. I am impressed with Rally Foundation, both in the way they support Rally Kids and families, as well as allocate much needed funds to childhood cancer research. My money and time will continue to support Rally Foundation because I believe in thier cause, and I think they are an amazing charity.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Funding toward childhood cancer research and supporting families with children affected by childhood cancer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them grow further to reach as many pepole as possible to understand the challenges of funding childhood cancer research.

Five years ago, Rally Foundation began as a small group of devoted volunteers with a dream of making a difference in the fight against childhood cancer. Today it has grown into a strong family of people who believe in that dream and Rally's mission and who are reaching out to help, not only the children who have the disease, but also their families. Rally has raised and donated over two million dollars to help fund research projects all over the United States.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've experienced the positive results Rally has had in the lives of the children who are the Rally Kids. Seeing the joy in their eyes at events like the Fashion Show and the Celebrity Softball Game, where kids are participants, makes the dream all the more real for everyone involved with Rally. We are reminded why we got involved in that small group of mothers praying for a miracle.

If I had to make changes to Rally, I would add more concerned people who are willing to donate their time and money to such an important cause.

I am privileged to have been in on the ground floor of the Rally Foundations emergence into the Pacific NW. What a great foundation to work with! The focus on pediatric cancer research is just where I want my 93% of the fundraising dollars I raise to go.
My daughter was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 1981 at Childrens Hospital in LA. It is 2011 and that three year old is now 33 years old and a mom. What a miracle their research provided my family. What a treat to put my feet to the pavement and be able to raised money for this cause and the power to cross the finish line with this group, you should try it!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

two years of participation with this awesome bunch of people

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want more people to know about it and participate in fundraising

Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research is an amazing organization. I discovered them after losing my 14 year old niece to Burkitts Lymphoma. After watching a CHILD pass away, and feeling absolutely helpless, I discovered there were things I could do to help others, and Rally was the organization for me to do that through.

Here are the reasons I was initially attracted me to Rally:

They solely fund childhood cancer research.

For every dollar Rally receives, 93 cents goes to support all phases of childhood cancer research according to their audited financials. They fund research to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures.

They were flexible and open to all fundraiser ideas and provided the much needed support in order to be successful. Their staff is amazing!

Having lost a child in my family from cancer, the #1 disease killer of our children, Rally's mission and success means a lot. For this reason, I will continue to support Rally's efforts and will be a part of their continued growth and success!

Rally On!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the research they are funding and the impact it makes on families of children with cancer!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none.
