Children’s National Medical Center
For over 130 years, physicians and nurses at Children's National Medical Center have been working to safeguard the health of children in Washington, D.C. What started as a small hospital in the city has grown to a nationally recognized leader in pediatric medicine with research facilities, satellite offices around the beltway and primary care centers. The hospital’s physicians and nurses are among the best in the nation – providing everything from routine well-baby exams to pediatric specialists in all medical disciplines. Children's is also a research facility, with hundreds of grants and studies performed each year.

The mission of Children’s Hospital is to be preeminent in providing health care services that enhance the health and well-being of children regionally, nationally and internationally. Through leadership and innovation, Children's will create solutions to pediatric health care problems. To meet the unique health care needs of children, adolescents and their families, Children's will excel in Care, Advocacy, Research and Education.

Athletes Against Autism
Athletes Against Autism (Triple A) is a group of athletes, personally touched by autism, who are harnessing their efforts into one voice in order to raise awareness and funds for autism research, treatment and education programs.

Athletes Against Autism is an initiative of the Cure Autism Now Foundation. Capitals goaltender Olie Kolzig is one of the founders of Triple A. As a father of a child with autism, he realized the importance of using his status and influence to make an impact on the more than 1.5 million people in the United States alone affected by autism.
