Ronald McDonald House Toronto
No parent should have to choose. Staying at the hospital bedside of their seriously ill child or staying behind with other family members at home — far away. Your support means they won't have to choose. $125 gives one family, one night together, at the House. Please join Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH Toronto) as we walk and run to support seriously ill children and their families during the most frightening time in their lives.
Far from home. Financially strained. Emotionally drained. Every year, hundreds of desperate families from all over Canada and around the world come to Toronto in search of life-saving medical treatment for their seriously ill children. Finding themselves in a strange city and in a vulnerable state, these families long for simple comforts: a hot shower, a home-cooked meal, a supportive shoulder. More than anything, they require a safe place where their family can stay together under one roof.
