Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest

House in 1979

Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest was established in October 1979 when a group of parents, physicians and McDonald's owner operators purchased and renovated an 8-bedroom house near the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Since that time, the organization has grown to include five locations, four in the Twin Cities and one in Duluth, MN.

Every year, RMHC-UM serves thousands of families with seriously ill and injured children undergoing treatment at one of our four partner hospitals. In addition to meeting their basic daily needs, our programming addresses the health and well-being of all family members, enabling them to cope more effectively with their child's health crisis.

Because families are never asked to pay for our programs and services, funds raised at the RBC Race for the Kids directly impact our ability to provide complimentary lodging, day-use rooms, a comprehensive meal program, laundry and exercise facilities, extensive family programing, an onsite K-12 school and more. Thank you for your commitment to the House that Love Built.
