RMHC–Hawaii Virtual 2023 Red Shoe 5K FAQ
The RED SHOE 5K community FUN–raiser is open to anyone and everyone who wants to help Ronald McDonald House Charities Hawaii raise funds for families with seriously ill or injured children. This is an opportunity to get out and get active in any way you choose. Walk, Run, Roll… Hike, Bike or Swim! It is up to you to decide what to do and where to do it!
100% of funds raised from this event go directly to programs and services, which will benefit children and their families staying in our homes while seeking medical care on Oahu. RMHC Hawaii takes some of the stress away from families caring for a seriously–ill or injured child when far from home and support networks. RHMC Hawaii helps to ease the financial burdens associated with the costs of lodging, meals, transportation, laundry and daily living expenses, which are significant for a family with a sick child.

Proceeds from the Red Shoe 5K will help us continue our mission. We are committed to providing essential services and a home-away-from-home for families from Hawaii and the Pacific with seriously ill or injured children getting medical treatment on Oahu. Our programs are built on the idea that nothing should keep a family from being at their hospitalized child’s bedside. They should not have to worry about where they will get their next meal, or where they will sleep at night.
