For 25 years Rady Children's Ice Rink has been providing seasonal outdoor family fun for San Diego. It started with a vision to bring an outdoor ice rink to San Diego and raise money for kids with cancer. In partnership with Rady Children's Auxilliary, Arts District Liberty Station and San Diego Ice Arena we are able to provide this event each year. We had over 35,000 skaters last year and have helped raise over 1 million dollars for the cancer care programs at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
