Let's Drive to End Cancer!
Rally Insurance Group, Century Fasteners & Pumps, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) have joined together to create a new fundraising campaign to end cancer now! Gearing Up to Find a Cure is a car show which brings together car enthusiasts, families, and communities to honor blood cancer fighters, survivors, and as well as those lost to the disease. We are going to shine our headlights on the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
The funds raised by Gearing Up to Find a Cure participants will help advance more breakthrough therapies for blood cancer patients. Most recently, thanks to fund raising campaigns, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the LLS funded drug ibrutinib for the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Be a Champion for patients
Car owners, car clubs, families, and co-workers form fundraising teams. These efforts culminate in an inspirational, memorable car show. Each participant in the car show will attempt to raise at a minimum of $100 by soliciting support from their friends, family, ect. There will be prizes for those car owners that raise the most funds for LLS.
Be a Champion Driver by raising $100 or more and receive a commemorative Gearing Up to Find a Cure t-shirt and a free lunch at the event. Each champion will receive special recognition for their accomplishment.
If a car club raises in excess of $1,000, they will become a member of the Torque Club. This will enter your club in a chance to win a party for your club members. Be a part of the club that is funding cures today and you will also receive special recognition for your tremendous impact!
