Join us for our first Virtual Kids Fun Run! Our run will be hosted from Saturday, November 7th-Saturday, November 14th. We encourage children ages 4–17 to participate in this special event from the safety of their homes, backyards or local neighborhood. Let's continue our fun and upbeat environment from a far while supporting the children and families staying at Ronald McDonald House New York. The mission of Ronald McDonald House is unique: We provide temporary housing for children who have been diagnosed with cancer, and their families, while the child receives treatment at New York’s renowned medical centers. In our 40 years of service, more than 59,000 children from all 50 states and over 70 countries around the world have called the New York House their “home-away-from-home.”
Current House Update During this challenging time, the House is still fulfilling its mission to continue to serve families. In working with their partnering hospitals, the House is taking extra precautions to keep the families as safe as possible. The House is providing each family with individually packaged meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner), kid-friendly activities that are customized to the child’s interests/age, and wellness packages for caregivers, all of which are delivered directly to their rooms. Local Partners/Supporters in the community have stepped up and provided families special desserts and treats to make our kids days as bright as possible.
