Rady Children’s Hospital

Rady Children's Hospital and the Padres have a long-standing partnership spanning well over two decades. Serving as the only pediatric specific hospital in San Diego, the Padres are proud to support the physicians, staff, and volunteers, while offering unique, uplifting experiences to patients receiving treatment.


The Padres are proud to be long standing partners of Make-A-Wish San Diego. Helping grant their 2,000th, 3,000th and 4,000th wishes at Petco Park, the Padres assist in providing wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. The purpose of these wishes is to enrich the human experience and provide the families with strength and joy.

Pedal the Cause

Padres Pedal the Cause is an annual cycling fundraising event with the mission of creating a world without cancer. The 2023 event is scheduled for March 18, where participants of all ages and abilities can ride, run, walk, spin on a stationary bike, or volunteer at an all-day celebration. All bike routes ride across the iconic Coronado Bridge and end on the field at Petco Park.

Starting in 2016 the organizations officially partnered to rename the event Padres Pedal the Cause and moved the celebration to Petco Park. Together, we have donated more than $23 million to fund 90 discovery grants and clinical trials for all types of cancer research projects in San Diego.

Everyone can be a cancer fighter. There are also reduced registration and fundraising rates for students, military and their spouses. You can learn more about Padres Pedal and how you can get involved by visiting
