Come Walk with Us !
The Walk for Kids™ is a 5K walk designed to raise funds and awareness for the services and programs provided by Pasadena Ronald McDonald House. The 2015 Walk for Kids will take place on April 12, 2015 at Exposition Park in Los Angeles.
Fair Oaks Women's Health has entered a TEAM for this event. Please come walk with us! Help raise money and awareness for the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House. Dr. Jick is the Team Captain. Did one of the doctors here help deliver your baby? Well, bring your kids to this great event and "show us your kids" ! It's an easy walk and usually a gorgeous day.
For more than 10 years the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House has provided families with a safe and supportive place to stay while their child undergoes treatment for critical illness or injuries at local hospitals. To date, more than 12,100 children and their families have stayed at the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House during their time of need.
The House strives to:
- Provide families of sick children with safe, welcoming lodging near their hospitalized child.
- Ensure that children have the support of their family members during their difficult medical treatment.
- Provide families with stress-reduction activities to help them avoid sibling and parental isolation, and loss of financial security.
The Pasadena Ronald McDonald House spends approximately $150 per night to shelter a family. Guests pay a nominal nightly fee of $25 if they can afford it. No families have ever been turned away because of an inability to pay.
Please join us for the 2015 Walk for Kids and help us ensure that we can continue our work into the future. There is no cost to register as an individual or a team, so register now for this very special event!
