All funds raised will be donated to the Rady Hope and Healing Fund, which pays for a number of the most urgent needs for the hospital, including construction and improvements, contributions to the discovery of cures and treatments for childhood disease and injuries, Autism research and programs, the Peckham Center for cancer and blood disorders, the Heart Institute, and the Chadwick Center for children and families.
Since 2010, Bridgepoint has donated more than $360,000 to Rady Children’s Hospital through various fundraising events, like the Bridgepoint Education Golf Invitational.
