I'm currently interning at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana(RMHC®-CNI). I'll be with this amazing charity for 6 months and am determined to learn everything I can and make the biggest impact possible while I'm here!
In the short amount of time I've been working for the charity I have become increasingly passionate about what the charity is aiming to achieve. To stay at a Ronald McDonald House, there is a suggested donation of $10 a night, but in reality it costs $50 a night to operate (but no family is ever turned away for inability to pay). In order to keep supporting these families WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
This year, RMHC®-CNI is proud to be an offical charity in several athletic events, including the Shamrock Shuffle! Creating this fundraising page was a way for me to both get involved and learn more about the fundraising world. In addition to creating this page I will also be running in the 8K race on March 25th!
All of the money that we raise will go towards creating a "home away from home" for these families in need. Please help us reach our goal of $5,000!!!! Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. And if you can't spare a dollar, perhaps you can spare a word of encouragement as I begin training for the race :)
Thanks for visiting my page and please pass it along to anyone you think may be interested in donating!
