The Greek Division of Ronald McDonald House New York, founded by Niki Sideris of blessed memory, helps support children and families battling pediatric cancer. The Greek Community has been a vital lifeline to families from Greece and Cyprus, as well as Greek-Americans and children from across the globe and all 50 states traveling to New York City to find the critical medical treatment for their children. We invite you to join the Niki Sideris Annual Memorial Walk-a-Thon, which raises funds and awareness for those brave children as they battle cancer. The Walk-a-Thon is a fun, family-friendly celebration of philanthropy and Greek heritage.
This year is a special anniversary as we celebrate the 25th Annual Niki Sideris Memorial Walk-a-thon! Due to the challenging circumstances, we encourage you to participate in our first ever Virtual Walk-A-Thon. We want, our spirits high and carry on our tradition from your home. This year will have 4 Captains (Costas Cyprus, Maria Pardalis, George Sophocles, Vasiliki Rentas-Sakkas), who will be guiding you through this experience and assisting with any questions you might have. We are going to keep it fun and easy to ensure everyone can participate and spread awareness for RMH-NY Greek Division. Please invite and encourage all members of your family and friends to join this year’s event. Let’s all unite in the spirit of generosity and compassion for the heroic children of Ronald McDonald House New York.
