Please consider supporting our House and the families that stay here!
WHAT WE DO: The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh provides temporary housing to families who must travel to the Pittsburgh area to get life-saving medical care for their children. Our goal is to provide a “home away from home” during one of the most difficult times in their lives. By providing the necessities of home, families can focus solely on the well-being of their sick child.
OUR HOUSE: Connected to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Lawrenceville, the Ronald McDonald House accommodates 60 families a night.
PITTSBURGH MARATHON PARTICIPATION: This is our first year participating, we would greatly appreciate your support in this wonderful event! Since we are new, to run for RMHC you must sign up on the Pittsburgh Marathon website but you still can set up a fundraising page on Crowdrise. :-)
YOUR SUPPORT: The suggested donation to stay at our House is $15 per night, but no family is turned away based on their ability to pay. Since the average length of stay is 11 days, we have set the minimum fundraising amount per runner at $165 ($15 x 11 days) to support one family staying at our House.
QUESTIONS?: Please contact Nicole at (412) 246-1109 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have about the Ronald McDonald House or our participation in the Marathon.
