The Northern and Southern Hemispheres will be joining forces on October 7, 2018 as The Koala Krewe to run the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC)! Kerryn lives in Adelaide, SA, Austrialia and Margy calls Atlanta, GA, USA home.
And yeah, we know October is a while away, but we wanted to get the word out ASAP!
Running in support of RMHC allows us to support a charity that we've both admired over the years. We can't think of a better cause than enabling families, who may not have the means to travel and pay for food & lodging, to be near their hospitalized children.
As members of Team RMHC/Koala Krewe, we'll be training (in seperate parts of the world!), fundraising and ultimately running (probably a bit slowly...) 26.2 miles in Chicago to help keep families together.
We thank you so much for your donation, in any amount, that will help families stay close to their children when they need them the most!
And...if you're anywhere near Chicago on October 7, 2018, come to cheer us on and be part of the fun! Or better yet, start training and run with us! :-)
Thank you so very much again!
Kerryn & Margy
P.S. Did you know $25 can provide dinner for a family and $80 can give a family a room for a night? Your donation, of any amount, will not only help us achieve our goal, but will help children stay close to their families when they need it most!
