Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska
Torchlight Run for RMHC
Run for the Seattle Ronald McDonald House!
The Seattle Ronald McDonald House is excited to partner with Seafair on the Torchlight Run once again! This year we are asking race participants to help raise $100 each by creating a personalized fundraising webpage to ask their friends and family for support. These are much-needed funds that will go a long way in supporting the Seattle Ronald McDonald House and the more than 700 families who call it a home-away-from-home each year while their child receives medical treatment. Did you know that a $25 donation sponsors one night of housing for a family at the House?
As an added bonus, each runner who meets the $100 goal will be entered into a drawing to win exciting prizes and gift certificates to local businesses!
To get started fundraising or for more information, please contact Ellen Sontra at (206)838-0629.
Thank you for your support!
