Red Shoe Run is an annual celebration of family, fundraising and awareness for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama.

After many wonderful years in Homewood, we moved Red Shoe Run to a new date and location: March 16, 2019 in downtown Birmingham! The 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run courses started and finished outside the Ronald McDonald House, followed by a family-friendly block party.

All money raised through the Red Shoe Run stays at the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham to keep families together at a time when it’s needed most. Special awards are handed out to the top individual fundraiser, the top fundraising team, the most spirited team and the largest team. Team perks include a complimentary team sign, VIP seating and a Team Roll Call during our awards ceremony.

Check back for updates as we plan for the 2020 Red Shoe Run! Remember to stay up-to-date with all RMHCA events by checking out our events calendar.
