Every September, in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, DoMyOwn donates a portion of our proceeds to The Rally Foundation.
Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children, but childhood cancer research is only allocated 4% of the National Cancer Institute's research budget.
The Rally Foundation has received the Independent Charity Seal of Excellence and has the highest available ranking on GuideStar. 92% of the donations they receive go toward childhood cancer research in the hopes of finding better treatments with fewer side effects and hopefully one day, a cure.
With these donations, we hope to continue to contribute to breakthroughs in treatment and cures. Last year, we donated $50,000 to the Rally Foundation and this year with your help, we hope to be able to donate even more!
DoMyOwn believes in giving back to our local community and nonprofits. That is why we are proud to support the following organizations and events.
The Rally Foundation for Cancer Research is a nonprofit that 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.
