This year, Challenge yourself

Everyone can make a difference.

Challenge yourself with a running event this year and raise money for families with children in hospital and get a free running t-shirt.

Thank you to the hundreds of people who chose to challenge themselves for #RMHCUK in 2023. Not only did they have a fantastic experience, they raised vital funds to support families with a child in hospital.

This year, we’re asking you to;

challenge yourself,

and take on one of our many running challenges,

5k, 10k, half-marathon or marathon.

All whilst raising money to give families with children in hospital somewhere to stay close by.

With the continuing cost-of-living crisis it’s more important than ever that families are able to be close to their children in hospital.

It spurred me on, it definitely did. I’m actually working towards something now.

– fundraiser, Joe.

Did you know?

This year, thousands of families will need a Ronald McDonald House.

Every day, families will travel miles to and from the hospital to visit their sick child.

Specialist children’s hospitals often don’t have room for parents to stay. Families can be found sleeping on the ward, in corridors or their car, just to stay close to their sick child.

We exist to give families somewhere safe to stay for free, for as long as they need.

Do something amazing this year.

Impact the lives of families with children in hospital.
