2020 Chicago Marathon for RMHC
On October 11th, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2020 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 together.
Why Ronald McDonald House Charities?
Ronald McDonald Houses allow for parents of hospitalized children to have a place to stay near the hospital free of charge. Children whose families stay at Ronald McDonald Houses tend to be the sickest, have traveled the furthest distances and spend the longest time in the hospital.
How can you help?
$25.00 - Can provide meals for a family
$50.00 -Can fill a Ronald McDonald Family Room with snack
$80.00 -Can give a family a room for a night
$125.00 - Can pay the utility bill for a day
$250.00 - Can stock a play room with toys & games
Whatever the amount, it all adds up to one thing: helping families in need!
All too often we don't realize the value or understand the impact of a charity foundation until we find ourselves in need. If you choose to support my effort to raise funds for RMHC, 100% of your financial gift goes to helping the families described above. Reaching my personal fundraising goal of $1250 secures my entry but more importantly, it provides funds that go directly to helping these families stay together during difficult times their children face as they seek specialized medical treatment away from home. As an added bonus Aramark generously matches each donation dollar for dollar.
I hope you will consider this worthy cause and my efforts to run the Chicago Marathon on RMHC's behalf!
