At News 8 everybody is wearing BIG RED SHOES–for 8’s Red Shoe Day virtual style! On June 4, everybody is helping fund-raise for San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House to give a home away from home for families of truly sick or harmed children treated at our neighborhood emergency clinics.
“I just feel strongly about helping,” said Todd Cooker.
After quite a long time after a year, Todd and his nephew Emilio Shafer volunteer on Red Shoe Day to fund-raise for the Ronald McDonald House. This year because of social distancing, Red Shoe Day will happen virtual style so people won’t hear Emilio’s renowned street corner scream.
“Donate to the cause!” said Emilio during an online interview.
At the point when specialists expelled tumors from Emilio’s mind, his mom Elke just walked out on him to energize at the Ronald McDonald House.
“They fed me, they had showers available, they even told me I could stay there,” said Elke.
The house serves more than 15-thousand relatives consistently.
“It is a huge community event for us which does several things for us it raises a lot of money last year alone 125,000 dollars came to us from street corners,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego.
The event is the biggest network-driven pledge drive for San Diego’s 56-room Ronald McDonald House, which for over 40 years has given a “home away from home” for families with a sick or harmed kid in a nearby medical clinic.
Much obliged to you, San Diego, for gifts of all shapes and sizes that give a “home away from home” for families like Emilio’s.
“When you go out and help somebody and you do it out of kindness it makes you feel good,” said Todd Cooker.
