Rally Week at Vaughan!

Join us this week as Vaughan Elementary partners with Rally Foundation to RALLY for childhood cancer research! 

Vaughan will host our 7th RALLY 4 Quarters 4 Research (4Q4R) fundraiser which encourages kids to help other kids. Since 2010, Vaughan has organized this annual Rally Week and raised more than $60,000 for childhood cancer research which is an incredible accomplishment!

This week of community service events will be done in memory of former Vaughan students Alexa  and Tyler and in honor of Rally Kids Catherine, Kayla, Mary, Christopher and Leigh.  Catherine is currently at Vaughan in 3rd grade and Kayla, Mary, Christopher and Leigh are all former students of Vaughan that have fought childhood cancer and are survivors. 

By collecting loose change (and other denominations of money including checks made out to Rally Foundation) for the classroom competition and hosting a student-wide variety show, Rally 4Q4R week at Vaughan offers a platform for the community to save lives by helping raise funds for childhood cancer research.

Please join the RALLY this week by making a donation, volunteering to help, and attending our two Benefit Variety Shows on Thursday 1/28/16 and Friday 1/29/16, both starting at 6:30 pm.  (There will be Chick-fil-A and pizza slices for sale at both shows) Please review the list of volunteer opportunities and bake sale donations needed and sign up to help if you can.

We have a NEW online link to a “Vaughan Rally Page” this year where you can donate online with a debit or credit card. Just make sure to include your child’s teacher’s name in the comment sections so the donation will be counted towards the classroom competition.  If you do NOT include the classroom teacher your online donation will not be able to go towards a particular teacher. You can also see other information about our Rally Week, including the daily total which will be updated each evening. So stop by often and see how YOU can be a part of making a difference in the life of a child with cancer!

For any questions about Rally Week, please contact Robin Rohrbach
