Welcome to Lauren's RMHC Fundraiser, in loving memory of Sara Hartmann
On October 11th, with my sister Genevieve by my side, I will be representing the 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 in memory of our beloved cousin Sara Hartmann.
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.
The Ronald McDonald Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.
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!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for considering a donation in memory of Sara Hartmann.
