We’ve successfully finished this year’s Padres Pedal the Cause! Helping this cause for the second year in a row is something our NUVA Shareowners gain excitement about every fall season. Something special we all looked forward to this year was our sponsorship of the Coronado Bridge routes!
As one of San Diego’s players in the healthcare industry, we feel strongly about the need for cancer research and helping the four beneficiaries get closer to finding a cure. Thank you to UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys, Salk Institute, and Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego for turning the proceeds of Pedal the Cause into funding for more life-saving cancer research!
This year our team grew to 62 members, including Shareowners, their family members, and their friends. It was a rewarding 2-day event, riding alongside our teammates on tough paths like the 88-mile Honey Springs Heartbreaker, or the casual 2-mile Urban Loop around downtown San Diego. We had the opportunity of sponsoring Travis Hackett through the “Ride for a Child” program that pairs teams with pediatric oncology patients at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.
At NUVA, we’re very passionate about the patient and how much this cause creates a collective impact in not only our local community, but worldwide. This year Team NUVA has raised $25,760 so far, adding to our grand total of over $72,925 between 2016 and 2017. Thank you to all of the participating teams for cycling together, giving back to our fellow healthcare leaders and ultimately changing more patient lives.
