All proceeds from Running for Ronald will support the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte’s operating budget which allows the house to provide housing, food, shelter, and support to families of seriously ill or injured children at little or no cost to the families. No family is ever denied service due to inability to pay, and those families who choose to contribute are asked only for a small donation to help offset the cost of their stay.
