Have You Seen the Big Red Shoes around town? Please help support my Red Shoes Walk!
How can you help: By making a donation to assist us in reaching our goal of $1,600, which is the cost to run the house for 1 night.
Here is your chance to be a blessing to someone else! The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston is presenting its 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 27 families of critically ill children, travels to Charleston for treatment, calling the House a ‘home away from home’. The Ronald McDonald House (RMH)offers these families comfortable beds, hot meals and a caring staff, all just steps from the hospital. It is through your support, that they 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.
The cost of running the House for 1 night is $1600. On average, our House turns away 8 families every night due to a lack of space. This year, they are expanding the house to help more families in need. They will be adding 5 bedrooms for a total of 32 rooms.
We wil 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.
