Sometimes making a difference is as simple as asking, “What can I do to help?”

The Power of a Question

In 2005, an 18-year-old boy named William was fighting a brain tumor for the second time in two years. Rally Founder and CEO Dean Crowe asked a simple question, “What can I do to help you? And I will not make you dinner. This situation is so past dinner.” This led William’s mom to reply: “Raise money for childhood cancer research, and fund the best research wherever it may be.” The mission of Rally was born that day.


Our Mission

Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, empowers volunteers across the country to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures.


We are philanthropic seed investors in the next great discovery and utilize a dual peer review process that supports research at all stages, from the initial idea to clinical trial.
