Help support me in my Ride for Sick Kids with RMHC® NNSW
When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, it can have a devastating impact on families. As well as the uncertainty and fear, there’s added stress for families who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs.
So, from 5 to 9 September, I’m one of a dedicated group of riders pedalling from Grafton to Newcastle in five days. That's around 100k's a day over some challenging terrain.
Together, we aim to raise $200,000 to help sick kids and their families.
Each year around 700 families from Northern NSW are given a "home away from home" at Ronald McDonald Houses in Newcastle and Tamworth so they can be near their child in hospital. Over 8,000 families take a break from their child's hospital bedside in one of the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at John Hunter Children’s Hospital and Gosford Hospital. 150 families are able to relax, reconnect and create precious memories together with a week's free holiday at the Family Retreat in Forster. And over 160 students are able to catch up on their missed education through the Ronald McDonald Learning Program.
Join me in spreading the word about Ride for Sick Kids Northern NSW by sharing with your friends, family, and colleagues - every donation both large and small ensures Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern NSW can support more families.
Thank you for your generosity!
