Red Shoe Day is on Wednesday, May 24
Each year, teams of volunteers gather at intersections across San Diego and collect donations from morning commuters to support San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House. This is our largest community fundraiser and helps our House provide a “home away from home” for families with children in local hospitals.
Thank you for your support!
