Last Friday was #NationalSuperheroDay and our friends at @mcdonalds made it extra special for children and families staying at the House. We served McDonald's for dinner before unleashing our inner superhero by decorating our very own capes! There was no shortage of Hulks, Supermen, and Wonder Women in our dining room that night! ⚡️

Additionally, McDonald’s restaurants across Manhattan served up Superhero Spicy Chicken McNuggets, with 15% of proceeds from April 28-30 coming back to Ronald McDonald House New York. We extend our gratitude to Manhattan McDonald’s Owner/Operators for raising awareness of Ronald McDonald House New York and inspiring New Yorkers to be champions for our mission.

Last week, we received a very special visit from our good friend, Chris Pratt!

Our families had a blast as they enjoyed McDonald’s for dinner, a special edition purple milkshake, and a scrapbooking activity with Grimace. Thank you to our partners at @RMHC and @McDonalds for bringing this event to our families 💜

RMH-NY understands the overwhelming value of keeping a family close to a child during their treatment. That idea could not have been more apparent than in the case of Oliver and his brother, Octavio. To allow Oliver’s brother to stay close to his brother, RMH-NY enrolled him in a local school on the Upper East Side to continue his education.

Oliver and his family were also chosen as our 2023 RMH-NY Gala family honorees. Visit Instagram to learn more about Oliver and his family’s story.
