Welcome to Bridget Hoy's Fundraising Page for RMHC St. Louis!
My family first got involved with Ronald McDonald House charities years ago during its charity bike ride. I then began volunteering and realized the incredible difference a "House" can make for out-of-town families who find their child needing treatment in St. Louis. This is a mission no one can disagree with or question. Not only that, the Houses in St. Louis are ran by the most generous, welcoming people I have ever met! When Patrick died in 2014, I decided to ask for donations be sent to RMHC in lieu of flowers, because I knew he enjoyed those charity bike rides. Not only did RMHC accept the money, it invited me for a tour, let me pick how the money would be used, and ultimately asked me to serve on its Board. This is a great charity!
Faced with a child’s illness life can stop overnight and parents enter a world of fear and worry. For parents who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs, there’s an added stress. Distance. Most families have to travel hours for treatment. Living expenses quickly add up. Long drives, lost jobs, worried siblings, sleeping in cars. Being far from family and friends. These are extra burdens no family should have to experience.
Thankfully, Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis is able to help when it’s needed most. They keep families with sick children near to each other and the medical care and resources they need.
I am doing what I love, to fundraise for RMHC and the families they support. And I need your help! By making a donation today, we can give families the gift of laughter, love and time together. For a sick child, sometimes the best medicine of all is having family nearby for more hugs, kisses and I love you’s.
So, help me raise funds #forRMHC and keep families together by donating today!
Sincerely, Bridget Hoy
