The FIFTH Annual BIG RED SHOE RUN!
WE'RE FIVE YEARS OLD!!
Run-Walk-Dash 5K for Ronald McDonald House Charities - South Western Ontario. You can elect to participate in the 5k Virtual event on August 19-21 OR back, by popular demand, the HOUSE 2 HOUSE event, where participants can sign up to run the total distance from Windsor RMH to London RMH (182km) throughout the months of June and August!
We also want to hope for your families and loved ones to stay close, just as the Ronald McDonald House does, so teams are definitely encouraged! Knowing that this past two years has been hard on families and businesses, we are hoping to see our community come together to help a charity that is so near and dear to our heart. So let's RUN at the oppourtunity to have some fun this summer, get sweaty, get healthy, crush goals and make a difference!
The Virtual 5k is not a unique event in 2022. This year, we are encouraging families and friends to participate in this event together as a team. Pick your place and hit the ground for 5k, anytime on the weekend of August 19-21. This flexible event allows you to support RMH wherever you may be! At home getting ready for back to school? PERFECT! Getting a well deserved beach vacation in? PERFECT! Hitting the trails of Northern Ontario? PERFECT! The beauty of a Virtual event is that it can take place anywhere at your leisure!
House to House 182k Run
This BIG HIT event will be a challenge for new and seasoned runners alike! There is a total distance of 182km from the Ronald McDonald House in Windsor to the House in London! How cool is this!?!? Participants in this event will run an average of 20km per week from June 25 to August 21 - how they divide their distance is up to them! Perfect way to train for any upcoming marathons this fall! This is also a great oppourtunity to hit the trails throughout Windsor-Essex! As a virtual event, this too, is great for anyone as it won't impede on trips, work or leisure activities as it's done on your own time, place and pace. Participants in this even will be given an A for effort and an added bonus at packet pickup!
Ronald McDonald House Windsor has been a part of our Windsor-Essex County community for six years now and has helped many of our friends, families, coworkers and neighbours. Through the peak of the pandemic, their love never stopped nor their doors close. Their dedication to our community has not waivered so we cannot wane on our commitment to them.
Did you know that in 2020, 31% of the families that stayed at RMH London were from the Windsor-Essex community? These families were seeking treatment for more serious illnesses at London’s Children’s Hospital, and found a much needed home-away-from-home.
With so many of our Windsor-Essex families using BOTH RMH Windsor and RMH London, we can't wait to raise as much as possible to ensure these families have all they need while caring for a sick child.
