Ronald McDonald House New York (RMH-NY) continues to closely monitor COVID-19 outbreak. We have been in consultation with our hospital partners who take their lead from Center for Disease Control (CDC) and respective Departments of Health. Out of an abundance of caution Ronald McDonald House New York have decided to postpone the Queens Fun Run until further notice. We thank you for your understanding and ask that you still consider donating to our House and our families during this challenging time. http://events.rmh-newyork.org/goto/queensfunrun  




On Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 8:45 am, children ages 4–17 are invited to participate in our Queens Family Charity Fun Run/Walk 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 35 years of service, more than 59,000 children from all 50 states and 70 countries around the world have been able to stay close to thier families during this difficult time. 

Volunteers 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.
