Hello, my name is Sara Sanfilippo. In addition to running the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon this March, I am also raising money for The Ronald McDonald House of New York.
I work as a nurse in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at NYU Langone Medical Center. Since New York City is home to world renowned hospitals and innovative services and treatments, families travel from all over the country in order to receive the best care they can for their children. Having a child that is sick is terrifying, and being away from the comforts of home while your child receives treatment is almost unbearable. The Ronald McDonald House offers a home away from home for these children and their families.
The Ronald McDonald House New York provides temporary housing for pediatric cancer patients and their families in a strong, supportive and caring environment which encourages and nurtures the development of child-to-child and parent-to-parent support systems.
Please help me in supporting The Ronald McDonald House of New York.
