Jen Wiggins' RMHC Fundraising Page
In two weeks on October 13, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon! I am raising money for this wonderful charity whose mission is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.
Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. A Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to call home so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little to no cost.
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 me achieve my goal, but will help children stay close to their families when they need it most!
