I am running the Newport Half Marathon on October 8, 2017 to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House of Providence. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated. For over a quarter of a century, RMH Providence has been the only organization in Rhode Island to provide a home for families in medical crisis. The House offers 28 guest rooms each with a private bathroom. A large kitchen, family room with play area, laundry facilities and fitness room are all available to our guest families. The House also offers programs that promote wellness and relaxation as well as a home cooked meal each night. In addition to its close proximity to medical facilities, the House offers something even more important – the support that comes from being able to talk and share concerns with other parents going through similarly difficult situations.
