WOW! On behalf of the RMHCA team, Red Shoe Run volunteers and guest families, thank YOU for participating in this year’s Red Shoe Run: Rockin’ 5K, presented by McDonald’s.

Your enthusiasm helped raise $73,456 which will provide 588 nights of comfort and care at the Ronald McDonald House, free of charge to our guest families.

This event truly shows the power of community to make a positive impact on families of sick or injured children. We cannot complete our mission without you!
