About This Activity

Sunday, April 14 at 9 a.m.
635 West Lexington St., Baltimore, Md. 21201

There is only one Ronald McDonald House in the state of Maryland, and we have been home to more than 35,000 families in the last 30 years. Each year, more than 1,500 families arrive at our doorstep in search of hope for a child battling a catastrophic illness or injury. Circumstances that bring our families here are unfortunate, challenging and often times tragic. Amidst the uncertainties and fears they face, we offer respite, normalcy, compassion and love.

$40 until December 31
$45 from January 1 to March 1
$50 after March 1 and on Race Day.
This includes an Under Armour shirt.
