In Loving Memory of

Alison Elizabeth Gerlach


Welcome to Ali's Rally!

On February 2, 2003, Alison Gerlach's life came to a sudden and tragic end. Only seventeen years old and a senior at Williamsville South High School, she was an outstanding athlete and a well loved student.

Upon her death, Ali's family chose to honor her memory by contributing her organs to other needy children and adults as a reflection of her unselfish love. In this memory and to continue to bring the gift of life to others, the Ali's Rally Foundation was born.

Since its inception, Ali’s Rally has raised over $250,000 for Unyts (formerly Upstate New York Transplant Services). Those funds are specifically designated towards Unyts' "Donate Life" program, a school outreach program with the objective of continuing to make Western New York aware of the need for organ donation.

We welcome you to our website and thank you for your concern for those in our community who are in need. Ali's story touches us all.
