To help you get into the Red Shoe Shuffle Spirit, we’re excited to introduce our first-ever 10-Day Challenge! Starting April 1st, there’s a fun “challenge” for you to complete each day as we gear up for the Shuffle on Saturday, April 10th. Complete them all or pick a few that mean something to you. Want to be a part of it? RSVP to our Facebook event for daily reminders and all the details you need to participate. You can also review the full schedule below!
DAY 1: Thursday, April 1
Peppy, Poppy, Red Shoe Box Pick-Up
On April 1, RMH will transform into the fastest drive-thru in town! We challenge you to stop by the House (1 Aisquith Street, Baltimore MD 21202) between 3pm-7pm for a Red Shoe Shuffle pep rally and Red Shoe Box pick-up in celebration of our 10th anniversary. We’ll bring you all the elements you know and love from the Shuffle (think freshly popped kettle corn from Poole & Kent!) and you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your car. We’ll get you from the start line to the finish line in less than 5 minutes. Talk about a Shuffle personal best time! Can’t make it that day? You can also drive-by to pickup your Red Shoe Box on April 9th between 10am-7pm.
DAY 2: Friday, April 2
Give or Get A “Shuffle Shout-Out”
Have you seen the famous “flower” deliveries around town? Well, our amazing flower ninjas have turned into Shuffle ninjas to bring you a very special “Shuffle Shout-Out”! For Friday, April 2th only, we challenge you to fundraise $110 for the Red Shoe Shuffle that day and you will get a “Shuffle Shout-Out” as a gift from us! Or, you can pay the happiness forward by sending a Shout-Out to someone who needs a little extra RMH love. If you hit that goal, our ninjas will reach out to you directly to find out where you want your special delivery.
DAY 3: Saturday, April 3
Shuffle Slideshow Saturday
With one week to go before the Shuffle, we going to enjoy a trip down memory lane by looking back at all our favorite moments over the past 9 years. Your challenge on April 3th is to post your favorite Shuffle memory, or if this is your first year, we encourage you to get red, white, and striped all over for some extra Shuffle Saturday pride today.

DAY 4: Sunday, April 4
Spread the Love
At RMH we are all about spreading love and kindness. The “challenge” on April 4th is a simple one: we encourage all our Shufflers to make a wellness call. Check-in on someone who has been on your mind and in your heart and say, “hello!” It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you last talked, maybe it has been one day, or one year, just do it! You’ll make their day and yours – we promise!
DAY 5: Monday, April 5
To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, April 5th is all about the 10 x 10 Challenge. We challenge you to ask 10 friends to each donate $10 (or more!). If every registered Shuffler does this, we can raise over $100,000 in one day. Let’s go for it!! And here’s the best part: the MI Foundation will match our dollars raised that day up to $10,000! Let’s start Shuffle week off on the right foot with a great final fundraising push!
DAY 6: Tuesday, April 6
Toot Toot Tuesday
This year we’re Shuffling for the Shuttle! Your challenge on April 6th is to fuel the happiest yellow bus in Baltimore with your best Shuffle dance moves. Let’s keep the good times rollin’!
