2018 Mega Bounce Run Calgary
Ronald McDonald House Charities® Alberta
We invite you to join us for the first annual Mega Bounce Run on August 11th, 2018 benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southern & Central Alberta. Participants will have a chance to liberate their inner child as they walk, run, bounce and slide through 5k of massive inflatable obstacle fun.
About Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta
RMHC Southern Alberta helps keep families close when their children need them most. Houses in Calgary provide a home away from home for families with children receiving medical care in the hospital. Each offers a warm, compassionate and comfortable environment where families can share experiences, eat a warm homemade meal, and rest while caring for a sick child.
The Impact of Your Support
Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta relies on the support of corporate partnerships, businesses, individuals, and foundations to keep the nightly cost of housing families with sick children low. Families are asked to contribute $12 a night. Third party events such as Mega Bounce Run help cover the remaining cost to operate each of our 35 suites. Average costs of these units are about $170/night.
