Join us for the 11th annual Running for Hope 5K! This race raises funds to help the children and families served at Advocate Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House® near Advocate Children’s Hospital. The foundation has raised more than $900,000 raised in the past ten years. Help them hit the $1 million dollar mark this year!
The overwhelming and sometimes terrifying reality of seeking critical medical treatment for a child is something that too many families need to face. Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana understands these challenges and they are committed to making a difficult time a little easier by offering a place for families to stay together near their children at a Ronald McDonald House® or at a Ronald McDonald Family Room®. Half of this year’s proceeds raised will once again benefit Ronald McDonald House near Advocate Children’s Hospital (RMH® near Advocate Children’s Hospital), RMH near Advocate Children’s Hospital is located directly across the street from the hospital and allows families to eat, sleep and find the emotional support they need just steps from where their child is being treated. Since opening in 2008, the House has served as a ‘home away from home’ for more than 47,000 family nights of care during hospital stays for their young children.
