The Red Shoe Crew and Ronald McDonald House Charities Baltimore are ready to Shuffle and hope YOU are too as we celebrate LUCKY 7!

It’s hard to believe that our Inaugural Red Shoe Shuffle took place in 2012. What started out as an idea for a fundraiser seven years ago has evolved into a Celebration of Community and Love in Action like no other in town. Every small step has added up to BIG impact for the children of RMHC Baltimore. In fact, since what has now become Shuffle Sunday got its start, more than 15,000 of you have participated by running, walking, shuffling, volunteering and helping to raise over $2 million in support of our kids and families.

And there’s no stopping us now as we get set to make history. Join us on Sunday, April 8th, 2018, as we commemorate the last Red Shoe Shuffle in our CURRENT location and get ready to embark on the future in OUR NEW HOUSE. Ask a friend, form a team, make a donation, and come out to help us break some records to make this our best Shuffle ever in an effort to reach our $400,000 fundraising goal.
