Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my personal 2018 Walk for Kids page! I hope that you will join me in raising money for seriously ill children and their families. Be sure to check back to view my progress, and please share this page so that I can reach my fundraising goal!
For more than 40 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California has been dedicated to creating a community where children and their families embrace life and healing with a sense of hope, enthusiasm, courage and joy through the operation of Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, a Community Grant Board and four scholarship programs. 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.
This will be our 4th walk in memory of our daughter, Olivia Abigail. I can still remember the time we spent at the Ronald McDonald House. It was a very difficult time for us, worrying about the health of our daughter. The Ronald McDonald House gave us a comfortable place to stay while we went back and forth to the hospital to be by Olivia's side. The RMH was like our home away from home. Each night, delicious meals were generously provided by various volunteer groups. Seeing other families at RMH made us feel like we weren't the only ones going through a tough time. During our stay, the outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, and the staff gave us hope and strength to get through each day.
When Olivia passed away, I remember crying back to our room with all of Olivia's belongings and feeling so heartbroken. In the morning before we checked out, we passed by a little pedestal that had a rose placed there in memory of Olivia. I was so touched that they honored my daughter. I will never forget how that made me feel. It made me think how precious her life was and how I cherished every moment I had with her. I'm so thankful that she was in my life even if it was for a short time.
I hope that you can join my team, Angel Olivia, on April 8th to honor my daughter and support all the families at the Ronald McDonald House.
