What we are about

We are young professionals dedicated to supporting the purpose of the Ronald McDonald House (RMHC). The RMHC offers a “home away from home” for families with children facing medical challenges and providing them a nurturing atmosphere of love, strength, comfort, hope and courage. As Red Shoe Society members, we support the RMHC’s belief that when you change a child’s life, you change a family, which can change a community, and ultimately, the world.The Red Shoe Society members have a collective goal to help make a difference in the lives of families with sick children. As members, we work together to raise awareness and funds for the House through a variety of social and volunteer activities. We strive to create a fun and welcoming atmosphere where emerging leaders can network with other community-minded young professionals while making a difference in the lives of those served by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida. We volunteer at the House, which provides us, as Red Shoe Society members, a unique opportunity to interact and connect with the families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House. Also, to continue in our fund raising efforts, we organize social events throughout the year to develop awareness among the young professionals of South Florida. Being that we are the Red Shoe Society, our members stand out by sporting signature red shoes to all meetings, activities, and events. This is our creative approach to making a footprint in our community!
