Rally HealthCare, a healthcare provider based in Milwaukee, WI, has been a long-time supporter of the LEGO® Rally project.
In early March, it was announced that the company would be donating 100,000 bricks to the LEGO Rally to support the efforts of the project.
As part of the initiative, Rally Health Care is hosting a rally for a local cancer patient, with more than 10,000 attendees expected to be present.
The rally is being hosted at the Milwaukee Farmers Market.
“We’re going to help him, we’re going help the local community, and we want to help our customers,” CEO and President of Rally Healthcare Rob Sargent told Business Insider.
“It’s a little bit of a milestone for us.
We’re going for something bigger than just bricks.”
The Rally Health Career Foundation (RHCF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that is a part of RallyHealthCare.
The organization has already contributed nearly $2.2 million to the project and is planning on increasing that donation to $2 million over the next two years.
“This is really important to the people that have cancer, the people who have other types of cancer,” Sargant said.
“The goal of the foundation is to give back to the community in a positive way, and it’s also a good way for people who are struggling to make ends meet to see their kids grow up and make a little money.”
The foundation has been working with the local health department to support local cancer care programs and we’re really happy that the community is really behind us.
“We are working with local communities to provide education, we are working to make sure that local hospitals have a better relationship with local providers and make sure the hospitals have resources and are able to make the best use of the resources they have.
It’s a really positive thing.”
The LEGO Rally is also making strides in Wisconsin.
In March, the Wisconsin State Assembly passed the Assembly Bill 535, which would provide financial incentives for local governments to make local cancer services available to the general public.
The legislation would also create a new statewide initiative to support community-based cancer care services.
This initiative will be funded by the LEGO Foundation, which has donated more than $2 billion to charities across the world.
“As we work to make this project as successful as possible, we want our supporters to know that we are a nonprofit organization,” Sargeant said, adding that he believes the LEGO Team will continue to work toward making RallyHealthcare the best health care provider it can be.
“Our goal is to make it the health care system that we want it to be, and our vision is to be a leader in this industry.”
RallyHealth Care will also host a series of events for the community to celebrate the campaign.
The company has set up a website to showcase the campaign and will also be hosting an event at the Lincoln County Jail on May 16, in support of the RallyHealth Career Foundation.
“For those that are participating in the LEGO rally, we encourage you to come and have a fun and interactive experience,” Sager said.
