Long Beach put on your walking shoes this Sunday April 23 and join together to raise money for critically ill children by walking in the 6th annual Long Beach Walk for Kids Sunday at Shoreline Park.
The family friendly 5K (3.1 miles), raises money for the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House, which provides a “home away from home” to families, allowing them to stay near hospitals, at little to no cost, while their child is receiving care.
Event organizers hope to raise $250,000 at the walk, all of which will go to providing housing and resources to families.
Long Beach Ronald McDonald House is a 23 Room facility located on the Long Beach Memorial Hospital grounds. It was opened in 2011 and houses families with critically-ill children receiving treatment at Miller Children’s Hospital and other nearby facilities.
Registration and donations can be made two ways: onsite Sunday at 7:00AM or online at walkforkids.org.
The opening ceremony starts at 7:30AM with the walk beginning at 8:00AM.
Shoreline Park is located at 200 Aquarium Way.
