Welcome to Team RMHC 2017!

At Ronald McDonald House Charities, we are honored to help keep families close when they must travel long distances to access the medical care they need for their sick child.  By choosing to run for #teamRMHC, you will help us to continue giving children the best medicine of all – their families.

As for the 26.2 miles, you’ll need support, and we’ll be right here to give it to you. From training programs and tips from a USATF certified coach to fundraising incentives and red carpet treatment (no, really – you’ll walk the red carpet), Team RMHC strives to make this an unforgettable experience. 

Registration for Team RMHC 2017 is now open!

Each runner is asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 if you register before the drawing application period closes on November 29th (After 11/29 fundraising minimum increases to $1500). On average, Team RMHC runners raise $1,400 with most who have close ties to the Charity raising even more. As a member of Team RMHC you’ll receive:
