The La Playa Unit of Rady Children's Hospital Auxiliary Proudly Presents its 26th Annual Celebration of Champions®

As supporters of Rady Children’s Hospital, the health of our medically fragile Champions and their families is our top priority.

Our top priority is always the well-being of our community and so, out of an abundance of caution, we are sad to announce the cancellation of the live Celebration of Champions event this year. But, in the indefatigable “fight on” spirit of our Peckham Center Champions, a virtual Celebration of Champions video will be released the morning of Saturday, May, 15 the same date our live event was scheduled. To receive monthly emails and video, email: CoC05152021@gmail.com

The good news is that with your participation, the landmark 26th Celebration of Champions is on track to be the most successful ever. As you know, many of the Peckham Center’s support programs are funded solely by your contributions, and the need for these programs continue. Your 2021 contribution will ensure no interruption to these crucial services.

This is the 26th year we celebrate the heroic efforts of children fighting cancer, their families and health care professionals. We have obtained a $1 for $1 match - so the impact of your 2021 contribution will be doubled!

Rady Children’s Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders offers one of the nation’s top pediatric cancer programs. Funds from Celebration sponsorships and donations help fund the Peckham Center’s award-winning social, psychological and emotional support programs for children and families during a critical time in their lives.
