Red Shoe Run: Rockin’ 5K 2021

The rain couldn’t keep us down at the 2021 Red Shoe Run: Rockin’ 5K, presented by McDonald’s!

RMHCA staff and volunteers are so grateful to every participant who ran in-person on Saturday, April 24. And of course we have to shout out all of our virtual participants who rocked the streets in their neighborhood!

This year, participants raised more than $72,853 for our mission. That will cover the cost of 583 nights at our Ronald McDonald House so children and their families can be together during a medical crisis.

RMHCA staff would like to thank our sponsors, Red Shoe Run committee, and volunteers for making this event happen!
