Welcome to my personal 2019 Walk for Kids page!
On Sunday, April 7 at UCLA, I hope that you will join me in opening a new Ronald McDonald House Family Room for seriously ill children and their families at Mattel Children's Hospital. Join my team as we walk for these special children. If you are unable to join me in person your virtual support will help so much.
As so many of you know, I worked for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California for over 16 years. When I began working with the Children's Burn Foundation I was so happy that the Ronald McDonald Houses were there for our children suffering from severe burn injuries. Now my two worlds are coming together as I have joined the Board of Trustees of the newest addition to the family... a Ronald McDonald House and a Ronald McDonald Family Room at Mattel Children's Hospital.
This "home away from home" is a nurturing oasis for children and their families with serious medical conditions.
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. and so many of you have been on that journey with me for so many years. Let's have a reunion, a day of celebration and have some fun as we walk for these children and families who need us!
Hugs to you all,
Thank you for your support! We hope to see you at the 2019 Walk for Kids!
