Why I Participate in Walk for Kids

RMHC helped support us through our miracle baby's NICU stay at OU Children's Hospital August through December 2019. Aaron and I were able to live at the hospital and stay right by Hunter's side while we all recovered from his traumatic preterm birth. Ronald McDonald House provided us a true home during those 134 days - emotional support, delicious hot home cooked meals daily, and a place to bathe, lay our heads down, and wash our laundry between NICU visits. We would have been completely lost without RMHC and we are looking forward to helping support its current residents through Walk for Kids!

About RMHC-OKC

While dealing with the uncertainly of illness or injury, parents of critically ill and injured children are often reluctant to leave the hospital. Ronald McDonald House Charities® Okahoma City provides a home-away-from-home for families who have a sick or injured child receiving medical care in the Oklahoma City area at NO COST to the family.

The Ronald McDonald House® at Oklahoma Children's Hospital provides 40 private rooms for families and is just steps away from the hospital. The House is connected by a skywalk to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital and has laundray facilities, a large kitchen, play area, living areas, and a salon.

The Ronald McDonald Family Room® is located on the 6th Floor of Oklahoma Children’s Hospital at The OU Medical Center. It is a special place where families who live in the local area, as well as families who have traveled long distances and may be staying at the Ronald McDonald House, can rest while staying close to their hospitalized child.

The Ronald McDonald Family Room offers a comfortable home-like setting including a living room area with a television, a kitchen stocked with snacks, showers and a laundry facility. The Ronald McDonald Family Room also has a quiet room for conversation and phone calls in addition to computers to stay in touch with families, friends and workplace responsibilities.

All of these amenities are provided at NO COST to the family.
