Julee's Walk for Kids Page
Hello friends and family!
Welcome to my personal Walk for Kids page! As you know, when I accepted the position of Executive Director at the LA Ronald McDonald House it was out of my intense passion for serving children and families, but serving them when they need it most is a humbling, moving and rewarding experience.
Little did i know, though, that Ross and I would find ourselves in the situation that the families of RMH do, with a child in intensive care. While our sweet baby Duncan is now, at 6 months, a beautiful bouncing baby boy, we experienced first hand the panic and fear of having a hospitilized child after an emergency delivery followed by 17 days in the NICU due to premature birth and kidney damage he had suffered in utero. He will for his childhood be under the care of the pediatric nephrologists at Children's Hospital Los Angeles to whom we are eternaly grateful.
We also now have an even deeper sense of gratitude for both of our healthy boys.
But please take a moment to hear from families who have traveled far and wide for the care we were so fortunate to have in our own neighborhood:
The Walk for Kids is a great way for anyone and everyone to support the work of the LA Ronald McDonald House -- every gift small and large, near and far, has a positive impact on the over 2,200 families we serve many of whom have traveled from around the world to seek out the specialists at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
Since 1980, the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House have served over 35,000 families from across California, the US and from nearly 50 countries worldwide.
When you participate in the Walk for Kids, you are showing your support for families who are facing the fear and uncertainty of having a seriously ill child. Please join us.
