Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research invites you to Rally Pensacola’s third annual Rally On the Runway - hosted by title sponsor, Sandy Sansing Dealerships - on Friday, August 14 at 6:30 pm at Brownsville Community Center.

This fashionably chic fundraiser is filled with fashion, food and fun. Local Rally Kids, children who are currently fighting or have fought cancer, are the highlight of the event, melting hearts as they walk the runway arm-in-arm with professional athletes and celebrities. In addition to the Rally Kid fashion show, guests will enjoy fabulous food tastings from area chefs, an open cocktail bar, a preview of the latest spring trends worn by professional models and an opportunity to participate in silent and live auctions. The event is for ages 21+.

Proceeds from Rally On the Runway will support Rally Foundation's mission to fund childhood cancer research to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures for childhood cancer. Cancer is the number one disease killer of children in our country and every school day, two classrooms full of students (about 46 children) are diagnosed with cancer. However, pediatric cancer research remains severely underfunded on a national level. Less than 4% of the National Institutes of Health's cancer research budget goes to support pediatric research. Organizations like Rally exist to fill that gap. Since 2005, Rally has given more than $16.7 million in funds to support childhood cancer research projects.

Rally On the Runway is also supported by presenting sponsors, The Bear Family Foundation and The Kugelman Family Foundation, platinum sponsors, KIA Autosport of Pensacola and Escambia County Sheriff's Office, and gold sponsors, the Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart, Simplified by Emily Ley and Granting Grace Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
