Last year, we told you it was our final Red Shoe Shuffle on Lexington Street. This year, we really, really meant it! On Sunday, April 7th, or the Happiest Day in Baltimore (as we like to call it), 2,400 shufflers officially took one final lap around our neighborhood at Lexington Street. As can be expected, we are all a little emotional. Shuffle Sunday marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter for RMH. We say thank you to this sturdy, hard-working house that has welcomed over 42,000 families and seen 37 years of tears, laughter, sorrow, joy, love and compassion.
As of this week, all of our families and staff will have moved into the new Ronald McDonald House. Our new house is beautiful inside and out, but the true beauty is not in the bricks and mortar. Rather, it is in what we take with us as we move forward – the heart and souls of our families and volunteers. Next year, the Shuffle moves across town and we literally chart a new course. We can’t wait to show you the new House – because all of you, and the money raised from the past 8 years of Shuffles – is what has made it possible.
Thank you again for always celebrating life, love and the power of community with us. You are compassion in action AND love in motion. We look forward to Shuffling again next year – on the East Side!
