Ronald McDonald House Charities
Team members collect money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities by creating one-of-a-kind donation banks. We pay the admission fee for our teams to run in the annual Red Shoe Shuffle.

Each year CRC supports the Festival of Trees through various sponsorships. The event is billed as the largest holiday extravaganza of fairyland forests, gingerbread towns and toy train gardens. The proceeds go to benefit the children of Kennedy Krieger Institute and their families. Learn More
Simple Sacrifice is the reorganization of the Franquelli Family’s nonprofit. From 1990-1995, Simple Sacrifice had grown to delivering up to 1,500 lunches each Sunday to the hungry of Baltimore City. In 2015, armed with 20 lunches, they began again. They continue to carry on their mission with 100% of donations going into making lunches. Learn More
