The fifth an­nual Red Shoe Crew Walk for Fam­i­lies in Spring­dale was truly su­per.

Lo­cal or­ga­niz­ers of the provincewide fundraiser called on par­tic­i­pants to come in their su­per­hero cos­tumes, and they didn’t dis­ap­point. There were mul­ti­ple Su­per­girls, Bat­men, a Cat­woman, a ninja tur­tle and other Marvel char­ac­ters.

The event in Spring­dale con­tin­ues to grow and or­ga­niz­ers are en­cour­ag­ing more fam­i­lies to take part in fu­ture events. They are also seek­ing ad­di­tional vol­un­teers for the com­mit­tee.

The hope is grow into the Green Bay di­vi­sion, and part­ner with sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties to con­tinue the mo­men­tum in the years

Par­tic­i­pants in the fifth an­nual Red Shoe Crew Walk for Fam­i­lies in Spring­dale raised more than $4,000. The event had a su­per­hero theme.

This year’s event gen­er­ated more than $3,600 in spon­sors and an­other $500-profit from a 50/50 draw. Com­bin­ing ef­forts with other events in

the Green Bay re­gion would show­case just how big of an ef­fort this is in the re­gion. This year, three Red Show Crew Walks gen­er­ated about $13,000 for the Ron­ald McDon­ald

House. There were also events held in Pil­ley’s Is­land — more than $6,000 raised — and King’s Point — more than $2,400 raised.

The Spring­dale event is or­ga­nized

by Na­dine Bath in memory of her son, Kai. Kai was a pre­ma­ture in­fant who died in 2012. Staff at the IceCap Youth Cen­tre help run the event.
