Ernest and Evelyn Rady are doubling down on their quest to help change the lives of children. Eight years after donating $60 million to the hospital that now bears their name, the couple announced a $120 million gift Monday to help it establish the Rady Pediatric Genomics and Systems Medicine Institute.
