36th Annual Virtual Red Shoe Run & Walk 5K

36th Annual Virtual Red Shoe Run & Walk 5K

Words can’t express how grateful we are to our community for making this year’s Red Shoe Run a success—despite the extraordinary circumstances.

Even though we held the race virtually this year, more than 163 runners and walkers participated from their homes and neighborhoods. Not to mention, 65 generous individuals who were unable to race virtually donated their registration fee to help us further our mission. Altogether, we raised more than $35,000!

This year, we’d like to send a special thank-you to Tom Rauen, a former Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City guest who ran more than 50 kilometers, raising over $3,500 for RMHC-EIWI! (Read his story here.) It’s gestures like this that show our families just how much their community loves and supports them.

This Year’s Race, By the Numbers:

  • More than $35,000 raised for RMHC-EIWI
  • 228 Supporters
  • 163 Participants
  • 65 Registration fee donations

We’re looking forward to next year’s race, when we can once again gather together in support of our families. Mark your calendars for May 2, 2021 and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates on all our events!
