“Shortly after moving to southern California with my family and putting down roots in San Diego, I became aware of Rady Children’s outstanding reputation and commitment to families,” said Alex Morgan. “I’m so proud to partner with the best in pediatric health care, whose mission and standard of excellence align with my personal values and the core pillars of my foundation.”

Launched in March of 2023, the Alex Morgan Foundation centers on three areas of impact: equity in sports, opportunities for girls, and support for moms. Recognizing that access to youth sports and children’s health go hand in hand, this new partnership will help fund the comprehensive care and support all children and their families receive at Rady Children’s.

“At Rady Children’s, many of our most impactful programs that support families throughout their hospital experience are funded through philanthropy,” said Patrick Frias, MD, President & CEO at Rady Children’s. “I know, firsthand, that Alex shares our enduring commitment to families in the San Diego region and that her ambition and standard of excellence matches our desire to impact pediatric care not only in San Diego but around the world.”

Rady Children’s is the largest children’s hospital on the West Coast that provides services to more than 90 percent of children living in the San Diego County region. Ranked among the 10 best children’s hospitals in the nation, Rady Children’s comprehensive pediatric medical services go far beyond a one-time visit, often creating lasting, long-term relationships with families as they navigate their children’s health care journey.

The Alex Morgan Foundation and Rady Children’s first collaborated on Mother’s Day in 2023, when the foundation partnered with Nike to visit the hospital and gift new moms Essentials Kits that came with onesies, socks, baby blankets, and more. Lauren, an Alex Morgan fan, was in the hospital with her newborn son, Jordan, when she received an Essentials Kit, along with a food delivery gift card to provide extra support during what can be a difficult time.

Rady Children’s Hospital will also be named as a Starting XI partner of the Alex Morgan Foundation, a select group of individuals, corporate and community partners that provide high impact thought leadership, financial support and other resources to drive the foundation’s mission forward. To celebrate the launch of the partnership, the Alex Morgan Foundation is auctioning a signed Alex Morgan jersey now through 11:59 p.m. on July 22, 2023, with all proceeds benefiting the work Alex Morgan and Rady Children’s will do together.
