Join over 1,500 volunteers at more than 220 intersections throughout San Diego County on June 27 from 6:30 – 9:30 a.m. collecting donations from commuters in the famous size 14 Ronald McDonald Red Shoe! Last year, over $150,000 was raised and the goal this year is to exceed that number. All individuals, groups, clubs, organizations and businesses are welcome to join in on the efforts. If not a volunteer, you are encouraged as a commuter to help in raising the funds.

During the morning, volunteers sing, dance, dress up in outlandish outfits and most importantly raise vital funds to help support San Diego Ronald McDonald House families. Participants can be seen at intersections throughout San Diego that morning in their bright yellow shirts and Ronald McDonald House signs, and mostRedShoeDayLogo_13 notably, the Red Shoes.

Each volunteer will be given an official Red Shoe Day 2013 t-shirt. Volunteers who raise more than $150 on their personal fundraising pages through will also receive a Red Shoe Day 2013 hat. Volunteers can register both individually or take an entire intersection with a group. They can complete orientation online or in-person and may pick up Red Shoe Day packets at San Diego’s RonaldMcDonald House located at 2929 Children’s Way, San Diego, CA 92123.

Breakfast is often named the most important meal of the day. Thanks to the partners at McDonald’s, volunteers will receive a “Be our Guest” card, good for one free McDonald’s sandwich.
