Hello Friends, We are so thankful for the love and support we received for the 2019 Walk for Kids! On April 7th, the Orange County Ronald McDonald House Charities (OC RMHC) held the 10th annual Walk for Kids event at the Anaheim Honda Center.
Together, we were able to raise an incredible amount of $315,000 to help keep families together through our services! The event was open to all ages and was packed out with 3,000 excited participants. The community came together to enjoy fabulous vendors, food, games, and interactive activities.
Participants had the opportunity to experience the excitement of both the Walker Village and Kids Zone. We enjoyed everything from eating small tastings from various food vendors to interacting with prehistoric animals! We heard from our mistress of ceremony, Elva Saray from Telemundo, and her energetic spirit gathered the participants together to warm up with the help of OC Martial Arts’ Kris Whittington. Even Captain America joined in on the fun, taking a break from fighting for justice!
Lastly, our very own OC RMHC Executive Director, Noel Burcelis, spoke on the mission of the house and personally thanked these sponsors for their continuous support:
