How to Fundraise

Rady Children’s relies on people like you to help create a place of healing and hope for the kids in our community.  You can help fundraise by participating in a current opportunity or planning your own event.

In either case, the funds you raise help us provide excellence in care for children, train the pediatricians of the future, purchase the latest technology and develop new treatments for childhood diseases.
