ORGANIZER: RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF PROVIDENCE INC
EVENT: 2015 Newport Marathon (R.I.)
My name is Michelle and I am a member of the Ronald McDonald House of Providence Running Club. Our mission isn't just running. We raise money every year for our namesake, the Ronald McDonald House of Providence.
The Ronald McDonald House of Providence houses the families of children who are staying across the street at Rhode Island Hospital. The services provided by the Ronald McDonald house are primarily funded by by contributions that come from outside of their corporate namesake.
Your support directly impacts the families of ill children. The house is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. No family is turned away if they are unable to pay the fee of $10 per night. Meals are provided by the house and volunteers. The house currently has 18 rooms, each with a private bath.
On October 11th , I will be running 26.2 miles in the Newport Marathon on behalf of this charity that hits so close to home. I am a mother of 3, a runner, and a big believer in my cause. Please consider donating, any amount helps. Thank you!
