Long Beach Ronald McDonald House: Walk for Kids!

As the saying goes, “When life gives you lemons make lemonade.”

Our cat Noah was pretty sick recently. Thankfully he is much better now. It’s because of Noah that I had to stay at home and did nothing but fundraise for the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House Walk. In fact, Noah and I became the top fundraisers for the walk!

Bob and I are devoted to the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House. The Long Beach Ronald McDonald House serves as a “home-away-from-home” for families of children undergoing treatment for life-threatening illnesses at nearby hospitals and medical facilities, including Miller Children’s Hospital. The Ronald McDonald House provides inexpensive, and often free, lodging for families who often travel long distances (sometimes from out of state) to obtain specialized medical care for their children. The Long Beach Ronald McDonald House opened in December 2011. I currently serve as a board trustee, chair to the Advisory Board and I’m the assistant chair for the 2012 Walk for Kids.

 

The 2012 Walk for Kids benefiting the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House was a great success. We had a goal of raising $150,000 and to this day, we raised almost $200,000. There were more than 2,000 walkers in Shoreline Park! It was a great day for a wonderful cause. And the walk proved that Noah and I make a great fundraising team!
