Despite the deadly crash, the organizers of the balloon rally say it must go on.

Rally chairperson Nancy Merkes says everyone at the show is devastated by the tragedy, but the rally will continue because it's being held to raise money for a good cause.

"Because we are trying to help other families that have a different sort of devastation and just feel that the event needs to continue," Nancy says.

All the proceeds from the balloon rally will go to the Children's Miracle Network, an association of hospitals that helps children cope with all types of diseases and injuries.
