Ronald McDonald House Charities® Atlantic is proud to introduce our very first Rise & Shine PJ Walk for Kids on Sunday, June 11th, 2017.  The family-focused 1km and 3km walk is kicking off in three locations in the Maritimes – Halifax, Charlottetown, and Moncton.  The funds raised for this event will help ensure that families from your community have a place to stay when their child is receiving treatment at the IWK Health Centre. 

Ronald McDonald House Charities® Atlantic helps keep families close to each other, and the care they need, when they need in most.   These programs include Ronald McDonald House, a home-away-from-home for out of town families with sick children, and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, an oasis of calm inside the walls of the hospital.

We invite all participants to raise a minimum of $120 as that represents the cost for a family to stay at Ronald McDonald House for one night.  Just a reminder that your registration fee of $20 will be refunded after the event if you reach that goal.
