The fundraising events support the new UCSF Mission Bay hospitals which
include the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, the UCSF Betty Irene Moore
Women's Hospital and the UCSF Bakar CancerHospital. The three hospitals
have a total of 289 individual patient rooms.
"The 5K Hard Hat Walk and Lights On Festival are
two of our final fundraising events leading up to the opening of our new
hospitals," said Mark R. Laret, CEO of UCSF Medical Center and UCSF
Benioff Children's Hospitals. "We hope UCSF patients, families and
staff, along with the generous Bay Area communities and businesses, come
out and join the events to support our new home in Mission Bay."
Participants can walk as individuals or form teams. Each participant
must register and raise $25 for the Hard Hat Walk; an additional
$75 raised gains entry to the Lights On Festival. Children 12 and
under have no minimum fundraising requirements.
The walk begins on Third Street at 3:30 p.m.; those who have raised
$100+ can enjoy free refreshments from 20+ local eateries and
entertainment from 10+ live performance groups. As the sun sets, the
festival will conclude with a countdown to a light show projected onto
the new facilities. A time-lapse video of the construction is available here.
