Please Support the RMHCSC and Our Walk for Kids 2017!
It is a sincere honor for me to serve on the Board of Directors of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California (RMHCSC), a very special non-profit organization which provides housing, financial support, community, and a “home away from home” for families whose children are being treated for a variety of serious illnesses at one of the leading children’s hospitals located in the Los Angeles area.
Our chapter is the largest in the world, having cared for many tens of thousands of families with children in need over the past 40 years with our six RMHC Houses in the region (Los Angeles, Inland Empire/Loma Linda, Long Beach, Orange County, Pasadena, and Bakersfield), medically-supervised camp, and other important community-based initiatives, college scholarships, etc. As many of you may recall, I have a deep, personal history with this organization -- having had the honor of serving for many years on the Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House, the third oldest and, coincidentally, third largest RMHC House of more than 350 Houses in 60 countries across the globe. It is incredibly humbling and rewarding to have joined the Southern California chapter Board this past year and to have an opportunity to contribute my time and effort to this very special organization, once again.
On Sunday morning, April 2nd, we will be hosting the Walk for Kids at Exposition Park, an event that is near-and-dear to my heart as a past Chairman who helped to grow this into our largest and most impactful annual fundraising event across the region. Our goal this year is to raise $2,400,000 -- funds which are essential to supporting the more than 200 families that stay at one of our houses each night, especially as the majority of financial support for the organization comes from individual givers like you and me. Many children from across the state, country, and overseas come to our Houses for the care they receive at one of the world-class hospitals nearby. My personal goal is to raise $10,000 (hoping for much more!) and I would greatly appreciate any support from you and your families to this incredibly important cause. If you are so inspired, please join the walk in person. I would love to see you there.
To learn more about the truly important, special work undertaken by the RMHCSC and its various houses and dedicated staff across the region, please take a few minutes to view the incredibly touching short video highlighted above. With your help and support, together we can change the world for the better, one child and family at a time!
