RED SHOE WALK 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 23, 2016
Attention Walkers, Supporters and Friends,
Due to Hurricane Matthew, the 3rd Annual Red Shoe Walk has been cancelled. That said, the fundraising will stay open until November 15th, when we will have the drawing for the various fundraising prizes. Please join us at our annual Lights of Love celebration at the House on Tuesday, November 15th, at 5:00 P.M. to kick off the holidays, and find out if you won a prize!
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the storm.
If you have not yet picked up your very own pair of the Big Red Shoes, we do have them for you!
The Ronald McDonald House of Charleston’s 3rd Annual Red Shoe Walk At the Grove at Patriot’s Point
October 23rd 2:00 - 6:00 p.m.
We are calling all enthusiastic, fundraising walkers to sign up today! Walkers can be of all ages, shapes and sizes! We are asking each participant to raise funds for our families who call our house “home” while their children are being treated in area hospitals. The house relies on donations to operate our 32 bedroom house each and every night. The cost of running the house exceeds $3,200 per day, so every dollar raised counts.
This is no traditional 'walk' as our walkers can expect more games, entertainment and obstacles along the walk while wearing their big red shoes!
Each participant will be asking to raise funds in support of our families! Each level you reach you will have a chance to win the following:
- $500 Level: 1 Round trip ticket on Southwest Airlines to anywhere in the continental USA
- $1,000 Level : A five day cruise for two in an oceanview cabin on a Carnival Cruiseline ship!
- $1,500 Level : 4 night stay with Dunes Properties on Isle of Palms or Folly Beach
October 23rd will not only be a day for the walkers, but a day for the entire Charleston community to come together to support RMHC Charleston. It will be a day to bring your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers out and enjoy the afternoon, all while supporting a worthwhile cause. There will be food and drinks provided by The Shelter Bar & Grill.
At sign up, a registration fee of $50.00 will be required. Once registered, the participant will receive their very own pair of the Big Red Shoes! All walkers will in fact be wearing the Big Red Shoes for the walk around The Grove. You can also use the shoes as a tool to help with fundraising! Remember, the more you raise, the better your chances are to win prizes.
We, at the Ronald McDonald House, believe that when a child is in time of greatest need, families and communities can come together to create solutions, ultimately changing a child’s life forever.
The Ronald McDonald House opened its doors 32 years ago as a home away from home where families stay while their children undergo extensive medical treatment. Today, the House is able to serve 32 families every single night. Here, parents and children lead a life as normal as possible during their traumatic times without the financial burden of costly hotel and travel expenses.
Our home offers these families’ comfortable beds, hot meals, a caring staff, and a four-legged friend, Gardy, all just steps from the hospital. RMHC Charleston has 24/7 awake staff to help our families whenever needed.
