Thank you for supporting Ronald McDonald House North Queensland in the 2018 Airlie Beach Running Festival!

As a Charity Champion for Ronald McDonald House North Queensland,  you are supporting sick children from across the NQ region, keeping them together with their families and close to the medical care they need.

This year our charity will benefit from any proceeds generated by the running festival.

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.

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
