Finding a "Home Away From Home" in a New City

Hear how the Ronald McDonald House provided support to the Rathweg family when their daughter, Bryn, was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. They stayed at the House following the surgery while Bryn underwent radiation and chemotherapy. 

"We experienced how the Ronald McDonald House can pick you up off the ground and fight right alongside you." - Josh Rathweg.

What your Gift Will Do

Your gift will help families find stability and peace of mind with rest, nourishment, and connections with others in similar situations. Best of all, you'll help hospitalized children benefit from the love and care of their families when it matters most. 

All money raised from Red Shoe Day will support the Home Fund, underwriting the core mission services of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. Temporary lodging, meals, and other life necessities at San Diego's Ronald McDonald House help to sustain families whose lives have been turned upside down by their child's diagnosis and treatment. By providing an unrestricted gift to our Home Fund, you are supporting our highest and most urgent needs as determined by our volunteer Board of Trustees. 

Thanks to our generous sponsors
