This is a virtual race to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. 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.
A portion of the race fees will be donated back to the Ronald McDonald House. Every additional amount donated, big and small, will help keep families close to their children when they need it most.
