MAKE A DIFFERENCE | BE A SPONSOR 

Ronald McDonald House Charities of El Paso and this fun family-friendly event could not be possible without the generosity of our amazing Sponsors!
We have Sponsorship Levels for all budgets and every little bit counts to help us continue with our mission!
Sponsorship levels come with varying benefits. The most rewarding benefit, however, is that your organization would have the opportunity to help provide a home away from home to the families of critically ill children receiving treatment in area hospitals.
For more information please call Loretta at (915) 542-1522. 
 

START A COMPANY TEAM

Challenge another organization to see who can recruit the most team members and win our Largest Team Trophy! Wet N' Wild's Freddy's Wild Sliders has held the title and kept the trophy for the past THREE years with a team of 150 participants! 
Encourage your friends and family to join!
 

DONATE SWAG ITEMS

Promote your organization by donating branded giveaway items for our Swag Bags. We make about 300 bags for our participants and would be happy to include anything you'd like to donate!
 

RESERVE A VENDOR BOOTH

We have over 300 registered participants along with families and friends who attend our event annually. The number grows each year! Reserve your vendor booth today, for your small or large business for only $100.

 

Every payment or donation made for this event will go towards our fundraising goal. The last thing parents of critically ill children should have to worry about are shelter and food costs. Every effort helps those families remain close to their babies through some of the toughest times in their lives.
