How it works

Every month, New Zealand families will travel an average of at least 210km for their child to receive hospital treatment away from home.

House to House is a virtual fundraising event which challenges you to support families staying with RMHC New Zealand. Walk, run, bike or swim at least 210km and raise funds to help us reach our collective goal of $350,000 to help us support families with a hospitalised child.

Clock up the number of kms families travel to a Ronald McDonald House, and raise money as you go. You can sign up as an individual or a team and create your own fundraising page. From the 1st – 31st March, every km you cover will count towards your target. Raise at least $1 for every kilometre you travel to help us reach our overall target.

To keep track of your distances, use a FitBit or download the free Strava app and your distance moved will be automatically updated on your fundraising page. Alternatively, you can log your distances manually and enter this onto your page.


This guide will walk you through entering your kms onto your online fundraising page. Please note: kms can’t be logged until March 1st onto your page to contribute to your total.
