As America’s first and only nonprofit organization with the mission of saving infants’ lives by improving pediatric care, the R Baby Foundation has donated $8 million to hospital programs to date and saved more than one million lives. The group’s tennis tournament first took place in 2010. Says founder Jason Pinsky, “Six years ago I saw the foundation was doing a golf event, and I suggested we should do a tennis event. The first year was sort of a test and it went well, and the demand has been high ever since. We bring together a great group of competitive guys for a great cause.” In 2015 and 2016, the charity is proud to have raised more than $500,000 for childcare initiatives including telemedicine with pediatric experts and mobile simulation training programs, in addition to symposiums, notes Dmitry Druzhinsky.
