WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The Happiest Morning in Maryland is right around the corner! Celebrating its 13th running, the Red Shoe Shuffle returns to 1 Aisquith Street on Sunday, April 14, 2024 at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maryland. Each year, thousands of Shufflers line up their red, white, and striped socks to show our RMH families that they have the support of our incredible community as they fight the battle of their lives.

Register today as an individual or invite your friends and family to make a team because teamwork makes the dream work! Our family-friendly 5k course starts at the Ronald McDonald House and takes Shufflers through downtown Baltimore along the Harbor and back up to the Big Heart at the House. After the race, we invite all Shufflers to stick around for Celebration Village, which will have fun activities for all ages, food vendors, live music, and special guests!

All registered Shufflers will receive a special race-day running shirt, 2024 Red Shoe Shuffle medal, plus some great RMH Shuffle swag. To the rockstar fundraisers out there, we’re bringing back fundraising incentive gifts as you reach each fundraising milestone! Stay tuned for more details on incentives coming soon!

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s lace up, Maryland! We’ll see you – and your striped socks – at the start line!
