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 ahead.

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.
