THE STORY:

Have you seen the Big Red Shoes around town? Would you like to own a pair just like the ones Darius Rucker wore?
 

Atkinson Pools and its employees are going to try to raise 48,000.00 !  

I need your help!  If all of our employees sign up and raise $1600 each we can raise the $48,000 to operate the Ronald McDonald House in Charleston for one month. 

As you may know, Rex and I have been fixing dinner there once per month for about 2 and 1/2 years.  Last month, we met Chris.  A new Dad with a little girl in the hospital working hard to go home after coming to the world a bit too early.  We have since hired Chris and his story is amazing!  We have met so many of folks with sick little babes in the hospital and the Ronald McDonald House offers them the chance to stay close to their babies in the hospital at next to nothing with meals, a warm bed, and comforting staff.  

I am asking for you to help me raise money for one month of operating costs.  Our company is hoping to raise $48,000 between our employees that sign up.  I am hoping for 30 employees to raise $1600 each to do this!

If you can help, please do !  These new parents need your support!

Well here is your chance! The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston is presenting the first ever Red Shoe walk, this October, in Hampton Park. It is sure to be an action packed event that you will not soon forget!

Each night we have 27 families of critically ill children, who have traveled to Charleston for treatment, calling our House a ‘home away from home’.  Our home offers these families comfortable beds, hot meals and a caring staff, all just steps from the hospital. It is through your support, that we are able to continue to help these families during their darkest times.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities 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.

Here’s our plan… Sign up now on the registration form below and we will provide you with your very own brand new pair of the big red shoes. A $50.00 deposit fee is required.  Between now and October 25th, we are asking each participant to raise $1,600, the cost of running the House for 1 night.  On average, our House turns away 8 families every night due to a lack of space. This year, we are expanding our home to help more families in need. We will be adding 5 bedrooms for a total of 32 rooms. 

We 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. 


Who: the entire Charleston community

What: Charleston’s first Red Shoe Walk benefiting the Ronald McDonald House

Where: Hampton Park: 30 Mary Murray Dr., Charleston, SC 29403

When:  October 25th, 2014 9:00am

Why: We need your help to continue supporting children and families in their time of need.

Stay tuned as more information will be coming soon!
