Red Shoe Shuffle 5K Run and Walk

Sunday, April 15 at 9 a.m.
635 West Lexington St., Baltimore, Md. 21201

There is only one Ronald McDonald House in the state of Maryland, and we have been home to more than 35,000 families in the last 30 years. Each year, more than 1,500 families arrive at our doorstep in search of hope for a child battling a catastrophic illness or injury. Circumstances that bring our families here are unfortunate, challenging and often times tragic. Amidst the uncertainties and fears they face, we offer respite, normalcy, compassion and love.


Team Registration: Build morale and form a team from your company, church, family or friends. Being part of a team is fun. You’ll build camaraderie and community while raising much-needed funds for the families and children of the Ronald McDonald House. Team members receive all the benefits of individual race participants, plus early packet pick-up. We encourage you to wear T-shirts displaying your team/company name or logo on race day. Team pages are easy to build on our FirstGiving site.

Fundraising: Choose a FirstGiving web address and use our template to create your own fundraising page. Set a fundraising goal, post messages, describe your mission and add photos and videos to personalize your page in minutes.

Snooze Runners: Add "I'm not a Morning person, but I want to support the Ronald McDonald House." I'll be there in spirit, so please use this registration as a donation.
