On May 2, 2010, my wife and I will be members of Team Ronald in the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour, helping to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House of New York. If you aren’t familiar with this great non-profit organization, the Ronald McDonald House provides support and care for families who have children battling cancer. The people at Ronald McDonald House help make the lives of child cancer patients and their families better (and easier) when they need it most – as they fight cancer.
According to the RMDH website, the organization’s mission is to “support each family and coordinate emotional and physical services, psychological care, ministry support, wellness programs, tutors, music, art, transportation, activities for siblings, holiday and birthday parties and camaraderie for parents struggling with their child’s cancer diagnosis.”
My wife and I will be riding in the 42 mile 5 Boro Bike Tour in about a month, and we need to raise $2,500 from our family, friends, and colleagues who want to help support the Ronald McDonald House, too. Writing a check is easy, but asking our social network is more difficult, and we hope to raise a lot of money and bring more awareness to this great organization.
If you would be willing to support Ronald McDonald House on our behalf, Karen and I would greatly appreciate it. I have never done anything like this before, and I hope we can count on you for any help you can give. You can easily donate online via the Ronald McDonald House website to help us reach our goal. You can also follow our fundraising progress, too.
Please help me raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House
