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. The seven programs that comprise RMHCSC all participate in raising funds and awareness with their individual walks throughout Southern California. The Long Beach Ronald McDonald House hopes to raise $275,000 from this year's event through sponsorships from committed partners and Walk pledges raised by participants and volunteers. This event is a lifeline for our House and the families we serve, helping to cover a significant portion of our approximately $1.5 million annual operating budget.
