I'm taking on this challenge of walking a marathon in August to raising funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Western Sydney in support of Kenz and the Miller Family who have been through a lot! As a family, they've just ticked up their 100 day milestone staying at this facility while Kenz is in Sydney receiving medical care.
Now, I have a bit of experience walking so I am going to set the bar a bit higher and aim to walk 200kms in August with a goal of raising $320 to cover the costs of 2 night accommodation for families at the facility.
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Greater Western Sydney is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head to rest at night. RMHC believe that when a child is hospitalised, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
I want to help keep families together, at a time when they need each other most. On average, it costs Ronald McDonald House Charities GWS $160 to support a family for one night, so please give generously.
Thank you for helping me make a difference for sick kids.
