Get Involved

Get involved with our organization! You won’t believe how easy it is to make a difference in the life of a local cancer patient. Here are just a few ways that you can help:

  • Donate

    Your cash donation is tax deductible. Make a secure donation by filling out this form. No PayPal Account?, No problem! You can also send donations via check or money order to: Get Your Rack Back - P.O. Box 4119, Clifton Park, NY 12065.

  • Donate Gift Cards

    We are always appreciative of donated gift cards to local or national chain restaurants and grocery stores. Your gift card donation will go directly to a local cancer patient. For a pick up or to drop off the gift cards, please Contact Us – thank you!

  • Host a Fundraiser

    Do you want to help, and know that others do, too? How about hosting an event on behalf of GYRB? Is there a restaurant or local business in your community that will donate a portion of sales or proceeds to your event? How about hosting a 'dress-down day' at work? Do you have an idea for a fundraiser?  Contact Us today!

  • Sponsor One of Our Events

    We strive to make each and every event fun, and hope to raise as much money as possible. The Annual Get Your Rack Back Gala and our Golf Tournament are just two examples of our efforts to raise thousands of dollars for our programs and services each year. We wouldn’t be able to help so many families, if it were not for the generosity of our patrons and local business community.

    Sponsors get their logo and/or name in front of thousands of attendees, as well as exposure on our social media sites, email newsletter, and blog. To become a sponsor, please Contact Us.

  • Attend an Event

    Everyone loves to have fun! Look for Events on our site throughout the year, register, and join us!

  • Volunteer

    Volunteer your time to help us plan our fundraising events! We love energetic people who are as passionate about helping local families as we are. We also welcome students who would like to learn more about charitable foundations and fulfilling volunteer hours for school. How better to learn about giving back than to do so in your own community?

    If you are interested in volunteering, please Contact Us for more information.

  • Your generous, kind and unexpected gift left me speechless with emotion and deep gratitude. I apologize for not reaching out sooner, but I have recently been going through a difficult time. Thank you for helping to soften the pain. Thank you for doing what you do with courage and grace.

  • I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your gift of gift cards this Christmas. These gifts have come as a tremendous assistance to my little family through these very difficult times. I am doing my best to support my son, who is 5 years old and my daughter who is 4 years old...

    -Kari, Chadwicks, NY
  • How can I possibly thank you for such an incredibly generous and thoughtful gift?! I so appreciate you thinking of me and for your encouraging words as well (including your book which I loved that was given to me by a friend). You definitely can relate which makes all of this even more special. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. The gift cards are absolutely helpful and just nice.

    -Toni, Fort Edward, NY
  • ...Get Your Rack Back is an amazing foundation. I am so grateful for your care and concern for my family during our struggle. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us and for my fellow sisters’ families!

    -Kari, Chadwicks, NY
  • ...She asked, “how could a stranger want to help me?” I answered, “well that’s what Connie and GYRB are all about!” Connie, God Bless you for being you and God Bless Get Your Rack Back!

    -Diane, Nurse Navigator, Saratoga Springs, NY
  • Just wanted to let you know how much your help has assisted me in my recovery. The financial and emotional support has been so much more than you will ever know. These are such special people who work and volunteer to help people – those of us dealing with cancer diagnosis and recovery – who will never truly understand how much they contribute to our recovery and peace of mind...

    -Lisa, Ballston Spa, NY
  • I received a phone call today from a woman who two days ago felt helpless. She was having trouble making ends meet and had limited money for gas. She travels far for her cancer care. There are very limited facilities where she lives. Yesterday she received an envelope from GYRB. It was filled with gift cards for food, gas, etc. She cried happy tears to me...

    -Diane, Nurse Navigator, Saratoga Springs, NY
  • ...With the travel from Chadwicks to Saratoga, and the price of gas and groceries, my children and I have found that your gifts of love were of greater value than you will ever understand...

    -Kari, Chadwicks, NY
  • ...Thank you so much GYRB! The money raised stays local to help our families and neighbors!

    -Jennifer, Saratoga Springs, NY
  • ...Reducing the monetary stress is such a relief and makes it easier to focus on just getting through your treatment and getting better. Thank you and please express my appreciation to all the groups that provide so much support and lessen the pain of cancer.

    -Lisa, Ballston Spa, NY
  • My family received a beautiful note and several gift cards from you. Thank you so very much for reaching out to us and for blessing us with your generosity. I could barely read your card to my daughter, I was so touched. Thank you Connie, your words and gifts were so appreciated.

    -Christine, Clifton Park, NY
  • I am the oncology MSW at Saratoga Hospital and I was able to deliver a generous check to my patient to help her cover her medical expenses for her cancer treatments. She was so overwhelmed with gratitude and asked me “why would they help me?” I told her because Connie has been there and she knows what you are going through...
