We are the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research (Rally), and we empower volunteers across the nation to raise awareness and funds for research in the fight against childhood cancer.
October Spotlight: Delta Air Lines President Ed Bastian takes to the streets of NYC to raise funds for childhood cancer research!
Delta President Ed Bastian is Rallying for the cause – his passion for childhood cancer research and a commitment to his NY team has led him to run the streets of Manhattan in the 2014 NYC Marathon.
Ed writes: “Dear Friends and Colleagues, On November 2nd, I will be running the New York City Marathon. It’s a dream I’ve always had (though I admit I’m not sure why!). It’s clear to me that it will be my first and last marathon – and I will be running to raise funds for the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. You may be wondering how this happened and why I will be torturing my 57 year old body…”
Why Childhood Cancer Research?
Because kids get different types of cancer than adults, and their young bodies need different treatments — Yet research for children is underfunded by more than $30M each year. These kids need our help.
Since our start in 2005, we’ve awarded $5.25M to
more than 75 childhood cancer research projects nationwide.
With your help, we can do even more.
