Thank you for supporting Ronald McDonald House North Queensland in the 2018 McDonald's Townsville Running Festival!

As an EverydayHero you are supporting sick kids and their families from across the NQ region, keeping them close to each other when they need it the most.

We are the McDonald’s Townsville Running Festival's Charity of Choice and 100% of money raised goes directly to support RMHNQ and it stays local!

Ronald McDonald House North Queensland has been open since 2004 and provides accommodation close to the hospital for families who often travel over 100 kilometres from home so their sick child can receive treatment. Without the support of the generous North Queensland community, we wouldn’t be able to support the nearly 450 families that rely on us every year.

In addition to providing accommodation, the Charity also offers: a Learning Program, helping kids who have missed school due to illness get caught up; a Family Retreat, providing a holiday to families with seriously ill children; and Family Rooms, giving families a place of respite in the hospital while their child is being treated in the children’s ward.

Late last year we proudly opened the doors to the very first Ronald McDonald Family Room in North Queensland located at the Townsville Hospital. The Family Room is open to ALL family members who have a sick child receiving treatment at the Townsville Hospital and in the first month of opening alone more than 300 people took the opportunity to cook a meal, put on a load of washing or simply "hang out" in our welcoming family space, taking a short break from their hospital stay. 

Your donations will go towards supporting and improving more local programs and facilities, which means more local sick children and their families will receive the benefits.

You can now create your own EverydayHero Fundraising page and start fundraising!

Ronald McDonald House North Queensland

When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, it can have a devastating effect on families. As well as the uncertainty and fear, there’s the added stress for families who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs.

Ronald McDonald House Charities North Queensland (RMHNQ) has been caring for sick children across NQ since 2004, keeping them together with their families and close to the medical care they need. We have a range of support programs including:
• Our hospital-adjacent House, which can accommodate over 100 people each night
• Our in-hospital Family Room, providing the comforts of home at the Townsville Hospital
• Our Learning Program, allowing children that have suffered serious illness to catch up on their schooling
• Our Family Retreat, giving families with a critically ill child or families suffering from a bereavement the chance to take time out together for a family holiday
