I don’t have a personal connection with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mid-Missouri, but I do with my bicycles and taking them on long rides. This will be the third year I do this ride, but the first time I try to raise money for it. I look forward to this ride every year; it allows me to ride and socialize with some great people while on my bike. So, this year, I decided to take it a step further and get more involved with the fundraising part of it. What I like most about the Ronald McDonald House is that they keep the support local. Below is an excerpt from their website:
All proceeds support the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Missouri, which provides a home away from home for families of seriously ill or injured children. The Ronald McDonald House gives children a place to play after a long day at the hospital; parents a home for a good night’s sleep and a warm meal, near the hospital; and families relief from the financial and emotional burdens of traveling for their child’s medical care.
