Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues, you are receiving this message as Tracy Scott and Sabrina Skwarek will be running to represent Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Sabrina ran her first marathon for RMHC in 2016 and Tracy ran for RMHC in 2012. The two of us have formed Team "OH YEAH" (as in OH YEAH--we got this!) and we would like to recruit you to join our team and run for families whose strength and unbelievable courage cannot compare to 26.2 miles. Believe us, we know 26.2 is no easy task and trust us, if we can do 26.2, we know you can too! You will be provided with training tips, coaching and an unbelievable support system to push you across the finish line (yes I said push). We will tell you this, it is the most humble and overwhelming experience you will receive.
If you cannot join Team OH YEAH, please consider making a personal donation to help keep the Ronald McDonald House open to all families.
Did you know RMHC has over 350 Houses worldwide? They provide vital resources and a place that feels like home to families whose children are battling illness and injury. $25 can provide dinner for a family, $80 can provide a room for the night - your donation, of any amount is appreciated. Please clink on the link below to either join our team and raise money with us or provide your donation to support families like our dear friends Dave and Peggy Young. This is thier story: Their son TJ passed at the young age of 16 months from complications of a surgery he had in trying to overcome Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome. Dave and Peggy gave up their jobs, house and everyday living to move their son to two clinics with ties to RMHC for over a month and RMHC did not take a dime. Please support families like Dave and Peggy by joining us or making a donation. Thank you so much!
