THE STORY:

We at Maestro like to do things that help other people. Whether they are clients, partners, friends or family members, we really do live to serve. It's simply because we believe we are all Better Together.

A few members of our team are running (or walking or shuffling) the Hot Chocolate 15k or 5k in Chicago this year. Many of those not running are participating in other ways - by donating, helping raise money, and by supporting our runners. The race benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities, which are pretty amazing. They provide comfortable, affordable places for families to stay while their children are in the hospital.

We all have our reasons for getting involved. You can read some of them in our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MaestroforMcDonalds/. We hope you will join us in this effort to raise money that will help families be closer to their little ones while they're in the hospital. In a way, we're asking you to help them be Better Together.

There is a huge place in my heart for the Ronald McDonald House. Our oldest son, Reid, was only seven days old when he was flown to Phoenix Children's Hospital in the middle of the night after being diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis. Born prematurely, he had not yet left the hospital and was now very sick. We followed him down the mountain from Flagstaff (where we lived) to Phoenix. When we arrived in the NICU at Phoenix Childrens, Reid had multiple IVs in his head and a giant tube down his mouth going to his stomach. The neonatologist shared his prognosis and the potential risks and outcomes. It was an emotional experience. We slept at the hospital that night. The next day the hospital recommended the Ronald McDonald House, which was only a few blocks from the hospital. They had a room for us. Over the next few months our days were the same; hospital by day, Ronald McDonald house by night. The Ronald McDonald house took care of our basic needs, food and shelter, at a minimal cost, so we could take care of Reid. Reid survived with multiple hard-hitting antibiotics. (He actually just celebrated his 13th birthday in May) Unfortunately, there were other babies with the same infection who did not. We are extremely grateful to the skilled doctors and nurses who gave Reid the best care possible. We are also grateful to the Ronald McDonald House and the many volunteers who cared for us. It is a privilege to raise money on their behalf. Please join me, and many others, who have experienced the hospitality of the Ronald McDonald House. 5 years ago

I'm running (OK, half jogging/half walking) in the Hot Chocolate race because I love chocolate. But I'm donating because I love what the Ronald McDonald House Charities do for families going through unimaginably tough times. I'm blessed to be the mother of a precious, perfect little boy. If he were to become sick and have to spend time in a hospital, I can't imagine not being able to spend every moment by his side. I am so thankful that Ronald McDonald Houses exist for families in these situations. My donation won't make their challenges disappear, but I hope it will help make at least one family a little more comfortable as they get through such a difficult time. 5 years ago
