Miles with a Mission
Lace up your running shoes and run with a purpose by incorporating the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities – Upper Midwest in your training plan! Join Team RMHC-UM and help us meet our mission of “providing a comfortable and caring home-away-from-home that supports keeping families together and reduces stress during a child’s serious illness” – and in exchange, we’ll cover your race entry fee and shower you with RMHC-UM appreciation (& swag)!
Did you know…?
Last year, 6,690 families were provided complimentary lodging, meals, transportation and a caring community of support at our four Twin Cities locations We strive to meet the physical, social and emotional needs of families with hospitalized children because we know that children heal better, and families cope better, when they feel supported.
So how does this work?
We’ll set you up with a fundraising website that you can easily customize – in addition, we’ll provide you with fundraising guidelines, hints and tips. You’ll be responsible for raising a minimum of $700 to earn a full marathon entry or a minimum of $500 to earn a half-marathon entry by the registration deadline (May 1, 2020). We’ll send you a registration code as well as RMHC-UM swag to thank you for your fundraising efforts.
*Please note: we still have 2 full marathon bibs availiable for charity runners to claim.
