#TeamRMHC at the Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest MARATHON
This fall, accept our challenge to become part of #TeamRMHC and let’s prove together that the good never gets tired.
On October 9th, within the Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest Marathon, we aim to exchange each kilometer run in reasons for hope and happiness for more than 15 families staying at the Ronald McDonald Houses during the hospitalization of their children.
The amount raised with the help of each supporter, who chooses to either run, donate or share the story of the Ronald McDonald Houses, will ensure free accommodation and the comfort of staying close to their children for 15 families travelling large distances in order to offer the best medical care to their loved little ones.
The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities Romania focuses on the creation, identification and development of initiatives meant to deliver a positive impact on children’s lives and well-being. In its 18 years of community involvement, RMHC has reached out to tens of thousands of children, through access-to-healthcare and educational projects.
The core programs are the two Ronald McDonald Houses (Bucharest and Timisoara), a unique type of project in Romania, which have been serving parents with sick children for more than 13 years. The Ronald McDonald Houses help keep families close, being a “home-away-from-home” for parents and children travelling from all over the country in order to find the best medical care possible. So far, they have served almost 15.000 parents and children. Apart from offering free accommodation, the Houses strengthen coping abilities, reduce the financial burden for already troubled families and increase the chances for positive outcomes.
Each year, over 9,200 nights of free accommodation are being offered to 1,500 people, saving over 1.1 million RON in lodging and travel expenses.
Quench your craving to do good by becoming part of our team.
