Children having to battle cancer is just unbelievable. Heart-breaking. Beyond words. Rally Foundation totally rocks by raising money to fund awareness and research for finding a cure for childhood cancer. And Juice Bar wants to help.
Nationally, Rally has been recognized as America’s MOST trusted charities. For every dollar given to Rally, 94 cents goes into its mission of raising awareness and funds for research…not to fancy this or fancy that which very few foundations can claim.
Rally has received the Independent Charities Seal of Excellence for meeting the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. Rally has also received the highest available ranking for Charity Navigator and GuideStar.
Since Rally was founded in 2006, they have given over $7 million dollars in research grants, funding 120 cutting-edge projects and fellows across the country.
Children get different cancers than adults, so their cancers require different research and different treatments than adults. Cancer remains the leading disease cause of death for children in America. It kills more children than the total of ALL of the other childhood diseases combined. And for the kids who survive, two thirds are left with pretty tough side effects to live with for the rest of their lives. However, on a national level, only four percent of government funds for cancer research goes to childhood cancers.
Rally began with a simple and impassioned request from one mom to another, as her 12-year-old son was fighting a brain tumor. When asked how they could help, she replied “Raise money for childhood cancer research and fund the best research wherever it may be”. So that is what we want to do as well!
We are honored to be involved and do our part. Stay tuned for upcoming events in 2016, and please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have ideas or would like to get involved. Thank you Rally Foundation for leading the charge!
