SpaceX, Tesla founder pledges $50M to St. Jude fundraiser

(CNN) -- SpaceX founder Elon Musk helped St. Jude Children's Research Hospital reach its $200 million fundraising goal.

Musk pledged $50 million in response to a public call for donations following the successful splashdown of the SpaceX Dragon Capsule.

Billionaire Jared Isaacman personally financed the inspiration four mission as a fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

He was joined on the three-day space tourism mission by Hayley Arceneaux, a childhood cancer survivor who now works for the hospital.

The crew will continue fundraising for the hospital by auctioning off some of the times they took into space, including signed collectibles.
