Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley’s Footsteps for Families Walk

October 15, 2014

This weekend I had the great pleasure of capturing the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley‘s 4th Annual Footsteps for Families Walk. (Whew, that was a mouthful!) They raised a bunch of money for the house and so that families can stay there while they take care of their children in the hospital. It was truly uplifting to see so many people come out to support such a great cause!

Around 50 volunteers showed up to make sure everything went smoothly.

DJ Johnny G kept everyone going from the set up, during the event and during the tear down.

Officer Chris Gutierrez from the Westchester County Police K-9 Unit did a demonstration with his partner, Jax, an 18 month German Shepard.

It was interesting to see all of Jax’s training, but let’s be honest, I just wanted to snuggle him 🙂

There were all kinds of activities to keep the kids busy before and after the walk.
