Inviting your family, friends and canine pals, Ranken Jordan will be hosting the 6th Annual Kids’ Walk, an event organized by the hospital’s Junior Board members. Ranken Jordan’s Junior Board is a volunteer fundraising group of kids 16 and under. The board meets quarterly and, with the help of patients, plans fun and diverse events for patients of Ranken Jordan and people of all abilities throughout the community.
The Kids’ Walk will be held on September 11, 2010 at Ranken Jordan, located on Dorsett Road in Maryland Heights. Registration starts at 9:30, and the walk will start at 10:20 a.m. In memory of 9/11, Ranken Jordan will honor veterans and current members of our military, police and fire departments before the walk begins. Participants can walk a two-mile path around the perimeter of the Ranken Jordan campus or choose a shorter path.
The hospital encourages participants to walk their dogs and participate in the Doggie Dress-up contest and the Dog Race. The cost is $10 for pre-registration by August 13 and $15 for registration after August 13. Proceeds from the Kids’ Walk will benefit the children of Ranken Jordan. All participants receive a Kids’ Walk t-shirt, lunch and a doggie gift. All walkers also can enjoy face painting and other fun activities. Visit Kids' Walk for more info.
