Jay Baldwin - Media Director   I value the mission of this program. The altruism of serving other people can be personally fulfilling, but more than that - Rally Alaska creates opportunities that positively impact the next generation. Through the vessel of sports, kids involved with 'Rally' learn important values that help to shape their foundation which will guide them through the rest of their lives.  ‘The texture of experience is prior to everything else.’  -Willem De Kooning
