About This Campaign

Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley
Walk over the Hudson

SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2019  
1 pm - 4 pm

THE WALK WILL BE HELD RAIN OR SHINE.

Join us as we Walk Over the Hudson on the Walkway!  
The Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge and spans 1.28 miles over the Hudson River from Poughkeepsie to Highland. We will meet on the Poughkeepsie side, walk across the bridge and back (approximately 2.5 miles round trip).   This will be a wonderful day to be outside and enjoy the amazing views from above the Hudson River.  

Please help us keep families together and close to  the care and resources they need when their child is hospitalized due to serious illness or traumatic injury.

Create a team! Invite your family, friends and co-workers to walk with you! Even if you can't join us that day, you can still support us and be a virtual walker.

WALK WITH OUR GRAND MARSHALL
DESKIN BURTON, 6 years old, from Hopewell Junction, New York

Deskin Burton and his twin brother Jake were born at just 24 weeks and 3 days gestation at Westchester Medical Center in January 2013.  Deskin weighed 1 lb, 10 oz, at birth and was just 12 inches long.  Tragically, Jake passed away when they were two days old due to complications from extreme prematurity.  Deskin spent 176 days in the NICU at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, before transferring to Blythedale Children’s Hospital, a children’s rehabilitation center where his parents learned to care for his special medical needs. Throughout his time in both hospitals, Deskin’s parents stayed at the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley.  After a total of 286 days, Deskin came home in November 2013.  In January, 2018, Deskin gained a little brother named Chayton.  Deskin is currently a kindergartner at Vail Farm Elementary School in LaGrangeville.
