Ronald McDonald House “Walk for Kids”
As May comes to an end here at 17th Street Dental Care we are looking forward to June and the start of summer. When you say June in Bakersfield people think many different things from graduations, to swimming, vacations, and of course the unbearable heat.
This year at 17th Street Dental, June means the Ronald McDonald Walk. The Ronald McDonald house was opened here in Bakersfield in June of 2009 , since then it has served as a “home away from home”, for the families of NICU patients or pediatric patients whose families live to far away to drive every day to see their hospitalized loved one. They offer the everyday essentials such as showers, a quiet place to take a nap, a kitchen to cook in and a place to do laundry.
On June 2nd, our office will take part in this walk and we invite our patients and their families to join us in showing support for this foundation. Please visit our Facebook at www.facebook.com/17thSteetDentalCare there is a link to the team website with more information about the Ronald McDonald Walk, as well as information on how to join our team, or if you wish to contribute financially there is also a link to help you do so. “Remember there is no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.”
