The Childress Commitment


Richard and Judy Childress have been successful in every venture they’ve ever undertaken.  Their expertise, whether in racing, wine making, or any of their other enterprises, has been finding the right people to get the job done and putting them together to form a team.

When Richard and Judy found out that traumatic injury was responsible for the death of more children in the U.S. than all other causes combined and how little attention this crisis was receiving nationally, they knew they had to do something about it.  By teaming up with Wake Forest Baptist Hospital to establish the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma, the Childresses know that they will be able to make a real difference in the lives of injured children throughout the U.S. and all over the world.

 “The Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma will be the focal point of a national movement to improve the level of pediatric trauma care available across the country.  We will assemble the right team to conquer this national crisis. The Childress family is committed to making the Childress Institute the leader in pediatric trauma care and will lead the charge on behalf of injured children everywhere.”
