2017 Marriott Champions for Children Golf Tournament
The Champions for Children Golf Tournament proudly supports our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. Rady Children's Hospital, the largest children’s hospital in California based on patient admissions, is a 551-bed pediatric care facility providing the largest source of comprehensive pediatric medical services in San Diego, Southern Riverside and Imperial counties. Rady Children’s is the only hospital in the San Diego area dedicated exclusively to pediatric healthcare and is the region’s only designated pediatric trauma center. In June 2016, U.S. News & World Report ranked Rady Children’s among the best children’s hospitals in the nation in nine pediatric specialties. Rady Children’s is a nonprofit organization that relies on donations to support its mission.
The funds that we raise in support of Rady Children’s Hospital helps San Diego kids by funding life-saving technology and research, providing a safety net for children with little or no medical insurance and helping to create a healing environment designed to enrich the experience of patients and their families.
Why we need your help. Join our 2017 Golf Tournament and help support kids like Cate!
Cate was an active, healthy, funny, feisty 5-year-old who was taking summer by storm in 2015. She was learning how to surf, attending camp at the San Diego Zoo and getting ready to start kindergarten. In July she began to suffer from occasional high fevers, muscle aches and fatigue. Three weeks later, on August 8, after a night of fever and night sweats, Cate’s pediatrician sent to her Rady Children's Hospital for a complete blood count. Hours later, she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She was immediately admitted to the Hematology/Oncology Unit to start treatment.
Cate is currently fighting her way through a two and half year treatment regimen of multiple types of chemotherapy and steroids. Cate's family could not be more proud of their warrior princess. With her best friend Sam, a furry 92 pound labrador by her side, Cate continues to face this battle with fierce bravery and determination. She loves dogs, art, the beach, jewelry, Lush bath bombs and Taylor Swift. Her last chemotherapy treatment is scheduled for October 13, 2017. And every day she moves onward and closer to the finish line ... #CateStrong!
