Picture this: On a sunny April morning in Central Park, Pasadena, Californian residents from all walks of life came together with the purpose of achieving a common goal—attaining invaluable resources for critically-ill children by raising funds for the Pasadena Ronald McDonald Housethrough their annual Walk for Kids charity event.
Events That Make a Difference
The donations Ronald McDonald House receives are put toward providing sick children and their family members with a “home away from home” so that they can have access to medical, emotional, and financial support when they need it the most, and we here at Your Great Event couldn’t be more proud of the major role we played in planning and orchestrating this heartwarming and momentous occasion.
A Community That Cares
At Walk for Kids, hundreds of eager participants traveled 3.7 kilometers through Pasadena’s Central Park while enthusiastic supporters cheered them on from the sidelines. An assortment of vendors provided the event’s participants with snacks, smoothies, customized Ronald McDonald House t-shirts, and other specialty gifts and goodies.
Excitement at Every Corner
The fun didn’t stop when the walk itself came to a close! After crossing the finish line, the celebration continued while the walk’s participants and their supporters enjoyed music, food, games, prizes, an inflatable slide, and much more. We were thrilled with the event’s great turnout, which even featured a celebrity guest appearance by the Los Angeles Laker Girls and Heidi Hamilton, radio host KLOS 95.5 as emcee.
Making Lifelong Memories
Walk for Kids went off without a hitch, and we’re so thankful that Ronald McDonald House Pasadena decided to partner up with us to embark on this rewarding fundraising journey. Giving back is one of the greatest joys of life, and we’ll never forget the fascinating people we met and the long-lasting memories we made throughout this incredible experience.
