What’s it for? 

The Annual #Cycle4Families is one of our main fundraising events. This event will provide vital funding for The Ronald McDonald House Charity as we take on the enormous challenge of raising €17 million+ for our new 53 bedroom Ronald McDonald House beside The New Children’s Hospital in 2022.

By cycling4Families, you make sure that the Families who live in the Ronald McDonald Houses each year can be close to their sick child. For a kiss, a hug or a bedtime story. A nice and safe feeling for parents and child. As a parent, you always want to be there for your child. Especially when it is at its most vulnerable. That is why the Ronald McDonald House is here and a sick child always has his parents close by. 

Research has shown that for a sick child the attention, warmth and closeness of parents are crucial for the recovery. We want to keep  as many ill children as possible with their dad, mum, brothers and sisters so your participation in our Cycle Event on May 11th will help us get closer  to our goal of Building the most important House in the world
