Team Jakob Superhero 2.0

Our family first learned about the Ronald McDonald House back in 2014, when our son Jakob, then only 7 months old, fell ill with a rare mitochondrial disorder. Our world was totally up-ended; we were thrust into uncertainty and worry … and we were many, many miles from the comfort of home or familiar faces. It was the Ronald McDonald House, of course, that provided a solid base of support during this time, giving us all those things that might seem trivial compared to the crisis itself -- but without which a family can’t focus its attention on their sick child. Since 2014 we have had numerous additional hospitalizations for Jakob. Each and every time, the Ronald McDonald house was there for us … and for that, our family will be eternally grateful. Realizing how important a role the Ronald McDonald House played in our lives compels us to take every opportunity we can to raise awareness of the benefit the Ronald McDonald House provides to the Hudson Valley. Participating in this event is one of those opportunities. Please join us for a great time at this event and help to spread the awareness for those great things that the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley does!

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.
