kms

My target 1000 kms

We as staff and volunteers at the Auckland Domain Ronald McDonald House are on a mission to support families staying in the House even more!

Every day we have families walk through the doors at the Auckland Domain Ronald McDonald House and it is our job to support these families during their stay in the House. 

Be it a friendly face when they have been on the wards all day, helping them with anything they need, keeping the House clean and tidy. Anything we can do to ease some of the burdens they are facing so they can remain focused on their child receiving specialist medical treatment we will do it. 

We want to take our support of the families staying in a Ronald McDonald House even further - by walking the same distance they travel each month to get to the House, and raising money while we do it. 

So we will be walking 1,000km in the month of March and hoping to raise $1,000! 

We need your help! 

Please help us help families staying in a Ronald McDonald House by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button.

The more people that know about RMHC® New Zealand, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
