Walk for Kids 2023 - Los Angeles

Kanner Family / 2 Degrees

This year begins my 3-year term as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Charity. Along with the role comes many added responsibilities.

Every year spring begins with The Ronald McDonald House Charities Walk for Kids. This major fundraising effort is critically important to the operation of our House and Camp Programs.


In my new role, I will lead by example. My goal this year is $250,000. It won’t be easy, but the generous support from friends, associates and my family, it will happen.

Our House Programs provide a “home-away from home” for families with seriously ill children. The child is just across the street at the local Children’s Hospital, with their family close by. Our Houses provide an integral part of the healing process, a place of Wellness for the families, a place to rest, to make a meal, or share a conversation with another parent dealing with similar issues.

Our Camp Program provides a place where children who require cancer-related medical care can go to experience the thrill of being a camper and some normalcy.

Our organization serves families from Southern California, other states and countries around the world.  Families with sick children all speak the same language. They are in the right place.

Below is a link to a short video, I hope it will touch you and motivate you to donate.


This year we have initiated a recurring gifts program. Perhaps a monthly gift would be more efficient for you. Please make as meaningful a donation as possible by using the link below.


Thank you for your interest

Doug Kanner and family
