SDCCU is supporting Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego as the presenting sponsor of the Rady Children’s Hospital Family Walk at SeaWorld®. SDCCU’s support includes a special, fundraising campaign at every SDCCU branch throughout Southern California.
The Rady Children’s Hospital Family Walk at SeaWorld will take place on Sunday, October 4, 2015 at 7:30 a.m. SDCCU will collect donations for the hospital by selling special paper sailboats at every SDCCU branch through October 10. SDCCU has been the presenting sponsor of this event, which is expected to draw more than 4,000 walkers, since its inception in 2007. Since the inaugural walk at SeaWorld nine years ago, more than $1.5 million has been raised for Rady Children’s Hospital.
“SDCCU is proud to sponsor the Rady Children’s Hospital Walk at SeaWorld for the ninth year in a row. We invite the community to join Team SDCCU in support of Rady Children’s Hospital by either walking with us on October 4 or stopping by any one of our 38 branches to donate to the cause,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “Together, we can make a real difference in the life of critically ill children whom we may never meet but whose lives have been saved through our support of the hospital.”
The walk is along a one- or three-mile course that begins at the Rose Marie Starns South Shores Park on Mission Bay. The bayside park is located on South Shores Road, just east of SeaWorld San Diego. The route will include a portion of the aquatic theme park. All participants will receive a t-shirt, free admission to post-walk festivities, including games, entertainment, food and fun, plus a 50 percent discount admission coupon to return to SeaWorld San Diego after the walk. Every dollar raised will benefit Rady Children’s Hospital.
