The 2008 Rally raised over $1,000,000 for children's cancer research,
care and treatment in its first year. "Everyone participating in this
incredible event made a difference in the life of a child in need," said Eva

extraordinary schedule of pit stops at some of the most exclusive
establishments and venues in the city, Rally Drivers and Celebrity Navigators
will embark on a journey of a lifetime.

funds to help children in their fight against cancer.
