MIDLAND-The Permian Basin had a special visitor in town this morning.
Ronald McDonald joined hundreds of residents in the 2nd Annual Red Shoe Run.
Midland College hosted this years 5k run and one mile run in order to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities of SouthWest.
The funds raised today are going towards both the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile and Family Rooms programs at Medical Care Hospital in Odessa.
"What we provide is a place for families to go to get support, we provide services…I believe there’s even a washer and dryer…you know you don't think about that, but families need that. There are also some places where families can sneak off and take a nap," said Ronald McDonald.
The charity helps families who have sick and injured children, and provides those in need of health care and education.
