Ronald McDonald House raises nearly $200K on Red Shoe Day

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego held its fifth annual Red Shoe Day fundraiser Thursday, collecting an estimated $190,000 with help from about 1,300 volunteers.

According to a release, the raised money equates to about 159,663 meals or 1,347 nights of lodging at the organization's 47-bedroom facility in Kearny Mesa and its Family Care Center. Volunteers stood at major intersections in San Diego to collect the cash donations in the organization's iconic size-14 red shoes.

“The pennies, dollars and more donated during Red Shoe Day adds up, allowing us to serve families with a child in medical crisis,” Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, said. “Our rooms are constantly full and our day use program serves hundreds each day. Today’s donations will help ensure we can continue to help families in their time of need.”

Donations continue to be collected online though personal fundraising pages created by volunteers, the charity’s website at RMHCSD.org and in San Diego County McDonald’s restaurants.
