Arielle is Running the Chicago Marathon!
On October 13th, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the 2024 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.
During my graduate program, I volunteered for a RMHC Family Room within a hospital and have been thoroughly impressed and inspired by the organization ever since. I'm extremely excited to tackle my FIRST marathon while raising money to support their mission of keeping children and their families together.
RMHC provides more than 2.2. million overnight stays each year, helping families save more than $611 million in lodging and meal expenses. This support helps families cope better and focus on the needs of their sick child, allowing them the ability to spend more time with their child, to interact with their doctors, and to make important decisions about their child’s care.
It costs approximately $100 to give a family one night of comfort and support. 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!
