Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my personal 2017 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 me, this is personal as it relates to my nephew Jake. At the age of 16, Jake suffered from a brain aneurysm on April 12, 2016; he passed away on April 14. While a horrifying, sad and very trying event for my Sister, her family and all of my family and friends, one bright light during our days at the Minneapolis Children’s Hospital was the Ronald McDonald House, where my family stayed for 3 days and 2 nights. While there are no words to express how important "a bed and a meal and a place to stay close to Jake” was for us then, when I returned to Los Angeles, I decided to put my gratitude into action. I am now a member of the Board of Trustees of the LA Ronald McDonald House and am committed to doing what I can to give back and make a small, yet very important, difference for families like my own.
For more than 40 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities has been dedicated to helping children and their families as they face the fear and uncertaintly of having a seriously ill child. The Ronald McDonald Houses embrace life and healing, provide a sense of hope, enthusiasm, courage and joy for families and children.
