The Charlottetown location of an annual fundraising event raised more than all other host locations.
On June 9, families from across the Maritimes gathered at Confederation Landing Park in their pyjamas to take part in the third annual Ronald McDonald House PJ Walk for Kids.
This year, the event raised $52,313 (and counting) in Charlottetown.
The PJ Walk for Kids raised more than $205,000 across all locations.
These funds help Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Atlantic support Maritime families with sick children who are traveling for medical care.
In 2018, more than 126 Island families received support from RMHC Atlantic.
The annual pledge-based fundraising event included a pancake breakfast hosted by the Parkdale-Sherwood Lions Club, followed by a PJ Walk with en route entertainment activities, refreshments and more.
This year, the PJ Walk for Kids was held in five cities – Halifax (May 26), and Charlottetown, Moncton, Saint John, and Sydney (June 9).
