Support My Walk for Ronald McDonald House Today
My name is Annie Chian, and I'm in 6th grade. Last year, I participated in the Walk for Kids to support Ronald McDonald House charity. I decided to walk after I met with families with critically ill kids who stayed at Ronald McDonald House. Many families, like the Jasmin and Sierra sisters in the picture, live many hours away from the hospital. Without Ronald McDonald House, their parents may have to spend the nights in the hospital hallways since the drive would have been too long and weeks of hotel stays would have been too expensive.
Since 1989, the Orange County Ronald McDonald House has been providing a warm environment of comfort, care, and support, a "home away from home", for families with seriously ill children in the hospital. Without donations and volunteers, they won't be able to continue to support families in need. Visit the Ronald McDonald House Charities website to learn how they help the families and to read more touching stories (https://www.rmhc.org/).
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who generously supported my walk last year!!! With your help, we raised total $4,125, the highest in youth category!
This April 8th, I'm walking again! The Walk for Kids™ is a fun, family-friendly 5K walk designed to raise funds and awareness for the services and programs provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California.
April 8th happens to be around my birthday, and I plan to celebrate my 12th birthday for this great cause - instead of presents, I invite you to support my walk by donating to Ronald McDonald House, or joining my team, "Team A", to walk with me! 100% of funds raised will go to Ronald McDonald House.
Let's break last year's record of $4,125 and reach a new high of $7,000. This goal is only possible if everyone not only pitches in yourself but also reaches out to your friends and family for more donations. Can I count on you to help the families in need?
