#Walk4Families 2017

Event Date: 07-October-17

#Walk4Families 7th / 8th October 2017

On the 7th / 8th of October 2017, The Ronald McDonald House Charity will be holding its annual #Walk4Families event in various locations nationwide.

Wear your Stripes for RMHC and help The Ronald McDonald House build a new 53 Bedroom House so we can keep more families close and together while their child is ill in hospital. This year we are adding an extra fun element to our Walk4Families event by encouraging all participants to wear something stripy or come completely dressed head to toe in stripes.

Our Families come from all walks of life, but our goal is the same for all: Provide “a home away from home” as their kids get back on their feet and back to being footloose and fancy-free!

The mission of RMHC, Ireland, is to provide a Ronald McDonald House in order to support families whose children are seriously ill in hospital. The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation and a caring and supportive environment for families, whose children are seriously ill and are hospitalised or undergoing medical treatment at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.
