Ronald McDonald House presents first Red Shoe Walk

  • Monday, August 4, 2014

The Ronald McDonald House is currently working to expand its facilities. PROVIDED

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston is presenting the first ever Red Shoe Walk, this Oct. 25 at 9 p.m., in Hampton Park. It is sure to be an action-packed event that you will not soon forget.

Each night, 27 families of critically ill children, who have traveled to Charleston for treatment, call the Ronald McDonald House a “home away from home.” The home offers these families comfortable beds, hot meals and a caring staff, all just steps from the hospital. It is through community support that Ronald McDonald House Charities are able to continue to help these families during their darkest times.

The Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) empowers families by providing stability and vital resources so they can get and keep their child happy and healthy. By keeping families together, RMHC helps children heal faster and cope better.

Sign up now at www.redshoewalk.com and the organization will provide you with your very own brand-new pair of the big red shoes. A $50 registration fee is required. Sign up on the website to have a private link to send to family and friends for donations. Between now and Oct. 25, organizers are asking each participant to raise $1,600, the cost of running the Ronald McDonald House for one night. On average, the organization must turn away eight families every night due to a lack of space. This year, the Ronald McDonald House is expanding their home to help more families in need. They will be adding five bedrooms for a total of 32 rooms.

They will then convene for a walk like you have never experienced before. Don't worry about the size of the shoes, as one size fits all. All participants will in fact be wearing the Big Red Shoes for a mile walk around Hampton Park.
