LINTHICUM, MD, April 15, 2015 — NFM Lending is proud to have sponsored and participated in the annual Red Shoe Shuffle for the fourth consecutive year on Sunday, April 12, 2015. The Red Shoe Shuffle is a 5K race around downtown Baltimore to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore (RMHCB).
In addition to sponsoring the event, a group of NFM Lending staff members and their families participated in the event, either as “Shufflers,” or as volunteers. Bernadette Pearson, HR Director, was a volunteer at the event. Pearson has been involved with the Red Shoe Crew since 2011, and has been part of the Shuffle since the first event in 2012.
“The Ronald McDonald House of Baltimore holds a special place for many of NFM’s employees,” said Pearson. “We are honored that we are able to be part of this fun and meaningful event, and to support such an amazing organization.”
Race participants wore red and white striped socks, similar to Ronald McDonald’s, as well as red necklaces, tutus, wigs, and other accessories to show their spirit. Race volunteers and families stationed throughout the race held signs of encouragement, and cheered on Shufflers. Often, children who have stayed or are currently staying at the Ronald McDonald House with their families attend the race. Families travel from all over the U.S. to participate in the Shuffle. Children, young adults, and parents who have participated in past Red Shoe Shuffles shared their triumphant finish line stories on the Red Shoe Shuffle website.
The race began in front of the Ronald McDonald House at 635 West Lexington Street in Baltimore. The 3.1 mile trail took Shuffle participants throughout the city, including through the Inner Harbor. At the finish line, sponsors set up booths with giveaways and activities for runners. In total, the event had 2,500 participants, over 200 volunteers, and raised a total of $345,000.
NFM Lending is proud to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore, and is thankful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this extraordinary event.
