Carole Ertley – Why I Rally

by Carole Ertley, 20 Year Rally Ambassador

September 25, 2015



Rally for the Cure proudly celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. There are 49 clubs across the country that have Rallied with us each year since 1996. Our new “Why I Rally” series was created to share the commitment and dedication of these Rally participants and Ambassadors. Each and every one of you makes a difference.

Why I Rally…

“My Mom passed away rapidly and unexpectedly in 1995 from cancer. I was crushed and promised myself that I would find a way to fight this terrible disease, for her, for all who are fighting, and for those who lost their struggle. Reading the new magazine, “Golf for Women” later that year, I saw the first ad for the first Rally. I knew that I had found the way! 37 Rallies later at my 2 clubs, and still counting, I am honoring her memory and truly feel that perhaps, just perhaps, I am making a difference!”
