Having a child is a blessing and joyous occasion. As some friends and family members may know, our daughter Mia spent 27 days in NICU at Westchester Medical Center, Maria Ferrari Childrens Hospital. It was an hour drive each way, along with paying tolls and the bridge. For the last 10 days of Mia's stay, we were blessed to receive help from The Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley. We no longer had the make the commute down everyday, just merely had to walk across the parking lot to see Mia. The Ronald McDonald House allows families with children at Maria Ferrari to stay at their house. All meals and laundry are included in the stay. The only thing the Ronald McDonald House asks in return is for a donation for the length of your stay, but will not turn away a family that cannot afford one. On May 6th Mia, along with family, friends, and supporters, will be walking to raise money for The Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley. Please help us raise money for this wonderful charity by making a donation. We were afforded the opportunity to stay at the RMH and wish for other families to be granted this convenience while their children are treated at the neighboring hospital. 100% of the monies raised goes directly to charity. Thank you for supporting this wonderful charity.

About This Event


************************************************************************************










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

SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2018  
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
Marlo Popi Doherty, 2 years old (from Lagrangeville, NY)

Marlo was born 4 months premature at 24 weeks. At just over a pound this incredible little girl, now turning two years old, put in the fight of her life to be with us and share her amazing journey. During her 170 day stay in the NICU, her family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley, which gave them the opportunity to be at their daughter's bedside every day and at a moment's notice. Please join Marlo in raising money to help other families in their time of need.
