RMHNY Greek Division Hosts Niki Sideris 29th Annual Walk & Spring Festival

NEW YORK – 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. The Greek Division hosted the Niki Sideris 29th Annual Walk & Spring Festival on May 11 to raise funds and awareness for those brave children as they battle cancer. The Annual Walk is a fun, family-friendly celebration of philanthropy and Greek heritage.

The Niki Sideris 29th Annual Walk & Spring Festival was held in person and virtually for those who could not attend. All ages participated, united in the spirit of generosity and compassion for the heroic children of Ronald McDonald House New York.

Andriana Pardalis sang the Greek National Anthem at the event. V. Rev. Archimandrite  Chrysostomos Gilbert, Dean of the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Manhattan, was among those present.

Following the Walk, participants enjoyed refreshments and a performance of traditional Greek dancing.
