Rally for Kids with Cancer Foundation
WELCOME TO RALLY FOR KIDS WITH CANCER FOUNDATION. SINCE THE FOUNDATION’S LAUNCH IN 2010, OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE MUCH NEEDED AWARENESS AND FUNDS FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST CHILDREN’S CANCER. Rally for Kids with Cancer Foundation is a grant giving organization. We partner with several world renowned foundations and hospitals that specialize in research, treatment and care of pediatric oncology. Since the execution of the first Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup event was completed in 2008, our events have raised over $10 Million in funds for the charitable organizations we support. This is a testament to what can be done when philanthropic individuals come together with one united vision, the health, and well-being of our children. HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT CHILDREN’S CANCER ISSUES? So often we hear about initiatives focused on breast, ovarian and prostate cancers – which are all vital. However, how many times do we hear about children’s cancer and the issues they and their families must face? It is our goal to increase the level of awareness of children’s cancer issues and the charities we support through unique, innovative, and fun events. ONE DAY THERE WILL BE A CURE FOR CANCER. We truly believe in this statement, but the journey for a cure is not possible without the generous support of people who share our vision. Studies show that: Today, up to 75% of children with cancer can be cured, yet, some forms of childhood cancers have proven so resistant a cure is illusive Childhood cancers are the #1 disease killer of children – more than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined Leukemia’s, tumors of the brain and nervous system, the lymphatic system, kidneys, bones and muscles are the most common childhood cancers. The cause of most childhood cancers are unknown and at present, cannot be prevented. Through the events and fundraising initiatives we execute we can support: AWARENESS Raise vital awareness through our annual campaigns and funded programs. We want to significantly increase the understanding what kids go through and the issues their families must face RESEARCH We will fund catalytic research and infrastructure that leads to what we hope will be a cure TREATMENT that accelerates improved health outcomes for children. Fund survivorship initiatives that provide support for kids and their families affected by cancer. Treatments that not only treat the disease but focuses on quality of life after the treatments CARE our goal is to ensure that each child with cancer will have equal access to the most current care and that the full range of needs of these children, their families and caregivers are met We will drive significant outcomes for the fight against kid’s cancer from the funds we raise.
