Run for the House

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

We know firsthand how important the Ronald McDonald House can be for families.  We found ourselves in Rochester MN with many questions and few answers when Alex was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor.  One of those questions was resolved for us before we even asked: "Where do we stay through all of this?"  The nurses put our names on the waiting list for the Ronald McDonald house and a day later we had a room where we could stay for as long as we needed.  The nightly rate was very small, and only a suggestion. 

There was room for Tim & I, Alex any time he was not in the hospital, and Caitlin was always welcome.  We were in Rochester most of the time over the next seven months and the Ronald McDonald House was our home away from home. 

Our story is not unique.  Ronald McDonald Houses across the country provide the same opportunity to families of children in need of medical care.  While we did not stay at the Des Moines Ronald McDonald house, we are behind them all the way!

This year's run for the house falls on October 1 - Six years to the day of when we left the Ronald McDonald house.  So for Alex, and for the Ronald McDonald House - Go TEAM ALEX!

Thank you for helping to keep this incredible organization in operation for families in need in Des Moines.
