Welcome to Liz's 2017 Chicago Marathon RMHC Page!
On October 8th, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! As a member of Team RMHC, I will be training, fundraising and ultimately running 26.2 miles to help keep families close.
Ronald McDonald House has become close to our hearts as a family. My niece and Goddaughter, Fiamma Mia, was born with a complete AV Canal defect. She had a large hole in her heart that could only be corrected with open heart surgery. Sweet Fia underwent her first open heart surgery on August 22nd, 2016 at Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn. Fia had her second open heart surgery just one week later. During this difficult time Ronald McDonald House provided a place to stay for my sister in law and brother in law so they could be close to their little baby girl. Being so close to their girl proved invaluable to her progress - they were there for her day and night during recovery.
By donating $25 dollars - you can provide dinner to a family. By donating $80 dollars - you can cover the cost of a family staying overnight. Any dollar amount helps! We will never be able to repay Ronald McDonald for their kindness - but I will try to support this charity and spread the word about it for the rest of my life.
Please consider donating and helping me reach my goal to support this charity and run for them in October of 2017. Thank you!!!
