RMHNY Greek Division 25th Annual Niki Sideris Memorial Walk-a-thon Online this Year

NEW YORK – The Ronald McDonald House New York (RMHNY) Greek Division’s 25th Annual Niki Sideris Memorial Walk-a-thon is taking place virtually during Memorial Day weekend, May 22-25, this year, offering participants the opportunity to give back from the comfort of our own homes and help the children and families fighting pediatric cancer. 

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 critical medical treatment for their children. The Niki Sideris Annual Memorial Walk-a-Thon, which raises funds and awareness for those brave children as they battle cancer is a fun, family-friendly celebration of philanthropy and Greek heritage.

This year is a special anniversary, celebrating the 25th Annual Niki Sideris Memorial Walk-a-thon. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, RMNHY’s Greek Division encourages everyone to participate in their first ever Virtual Walk-A-Thon, continuing the tradition with spirits high, even from home and with social distancing.

Four Captains, Costas Cyprus, Maria Pardalis, George Sophocles, Vasiliki Rentas-Sakkas, will be guiding participants through this experience and assisting with any questions anyone might have. They will also keep it fun and easy to ensure everyone can participate and spread awareness for RMHNY Greek Division.

All family members and friends are welcome to participate and unite in the spirit of generosity and compassion for the heroic children of RMHNY.
