On Saturday, November 12, 2016, at 9:00 am, children ages 4–17 are invited to participate in the 18th Annual Ronald McDonald House Kids Charity Fun Run to benefit Ronald McDonald House New York. This is a great opportunity for kids to have fun and raise money for an important cause. The mission of Ronald McDonald House is unique: We provide temporary housing for children and their families while the children undergo cancer treatment at New York’s renowned medical centers. In our 38 years of service, more than 35,000 children from all 50 states and 70 countries around the world have called the House their “home away from home.”

Firefighters will line the course. All participants will receive a T-shirt and running number when they enter. Upon finishing the race, there will be finishing ribbons and snacks. Watch the video.
