These events, held throughout September, raised more than $240,000.  The funds will support the annual operation of Ronald McDonald House in accommodating sick or injured children and their families each year.  

 

The Grand Prize for the Red Shoe Crew-Walk for Families event was a trip for two anywhere WestJet flies.  For every $100 participants raised on a pledge sheet for Ronald McDonald House, participants received a ballot to be entered into the draw.  A total of 1,086 ballots were submitted by all event locations and the winner was Ryan Higdon, who participated in the New Harbour Red Shoe Crew-Walk for Families.
