About this event

This event is provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon
& SW Washington

The Inaugural Ronald McDonald House Charities Stronger Together Walk is a
family friendly 5-K walk series held in: Vancouver’s Marine Park, Salem’s
Riverfront Park and in Eugene’s Alton Baker Park on Sunday, April 24, 2016.

Our goal is to not only build awareness but raise much-needed funds to
support families with critically ill children who stay at one of the two
houses in Portland. Families must live 30 miles or more away from our houses to be eligible to stay – we do not charge a fee. For more than 30 years RMHC has provided a “home away from home” for 32,000 families. In fact, every FOUR hours a family with a seriously ill child checks into one of our two houses.

Please join us on Sunday, April 24th at one of our three locations! Lots of fun activities, music, food, and cheer! Meet our walk ambassadors – families who have stayed with RMHC – and hear their stories. Registration is at 9am and the walks begin at 10am. Go to for more information.
