Meet Adam: Adam was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder as a toddler and underwent numerous surgeries before the age of 5. His parents enrolled him in a Rady Children’s research study to sequence his genome in the hopes of solving his medical mystery. The results revealed that he suffers from a deletion on his genome, causing a genetic disorder which can also affect the heart — that could only be discovered by genetic sequencing. Today, thanks to his care at Rady Children’s, Adam is an articulate, sweet-natured second grader who loves baseball and Legoland.

The Rady Children’s Auxiliary has been making a difference in the lives of children for over 60 years. The auxiliary is an all-volunteer organization consisting of over 1,200 members, whose mission is to support Rady Children’s Hospital through advocacy, community awareness, and fundraising. Net proceeds of the event will support the Auxiliary Endowment which allows the world-class scientists, researchers, and clinicians at Rady Children’s to explore new ways to treat and cure neurological diseases through genomics that includes DNA sequencing, clinical trials, training, and education.

Join the event for a day on the greens and help children, like Adam. Sponsorships and volunteer opportunities are still available. To register or for more event information visit
