The THIRD Annual BIG Red Shoe Run 5k is part of the fundraising initiative of McDonald's Restaurants of Windsor and Essex County in support of Ronald McDonald House - Windsor
This year has proven to be a difficult journey for so many of us. With the continued support of our Local Sponsors, our participants and the families of Ronald McDonald House, the McDonald's family and Big Red Shoe Run Planning team have made the exciting decision that the show must go on(line)!
Introducing "Big Red Shoe VIRTUAL Run 2020"
Ronald McDonald House has been a part of our Windsor-Essex County community for FOUR Years now and has helped many of our friends, families, coworkers and neighbours. Their dedication to our community has not waivered so we cannot wain our commitment to them.
Did you know that more than 75% of the families that use RMH South Western Ontario - located at London Sick Kids Hospital, are Windsor-Essex Families? With so many of our Windsor-Essex families using BOTH RMH Windsor and RMH-SWO, we can't wait to raise as much as possible to ensure these families have all they need while caring for a sick child.
BUT HOW DO WE PARTICIPATE IF IT'S VIRTUAL!?
VIRTUAL Kids Dash - 100m
Kids under 5 are encouraged to run 100 metres to glory
VIRTUAL Kids Fun Run 1km
Kids under 12 that aren't quite ready for the 5k event are invited to kick off their running career with a 1k Kids Fun Run
Anyone can register online for the 5k Event and participate anytime on the weekend of August 14-16 on your preferred running route. When you complete your event, you sign into your Race Roster account or follow the link sent to you via email, to register your time and distance.
