Thank you for supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities North Australia 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 RMHCNA and it stays local!

Ronald McDonald House Charities North Australia 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 Australia 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!
