Why fundraise for the Ronald McDonald House?
In addition to winning AWESOME fundraising prizes, you can be assured that every dollar you raise will directly impact our ability to provide food, shelter, comfort, and love to families with seriously ill and injured children.
Last year, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest (RMHC-UM) served thousands of families across our four Twin Cities locations and RMH Northland in Duluth. By asking friends and family to join your RBC Race for the Kids team and/or support your fundraising efforts, you will help us provide complimentary lodging, meals, and supportive programming to families dealing with a child's health crisis. At "The House That Love Built", families are never charged for services, and are warmly welcomed to access our facilities for as long as their child’s situation requires.
“We're just so grateful. Thank you for giving us a place to rest and refresh while our baby was in the hospital. RMH was a lifeline.” - Mother of a child hospitalized at Children’s, Minnesota - Minneapolis
Thanks to you, RMHC-UM saves families thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses for hotels, meals and more, freeing them up to spend precious time with their hospitalized child and other family members. Your support of our mission means the world to them and to us. Thank you!
