Please Help Us Support Ronald McDonald House

5 Boro Bike TourLast year, my wife Karen and I participated on the Ronald McDonald House of New York’s “Team Ronald” in the 42-mile, 5 Boro Bike Tour in New York City. With the financial support of our friends, family, and colleagues, we were able to raise nearly $4,000 for the Ronald McDonald House.

On May 2, 2011, my wife are once again riding on Team Ronald to help raise funds.

This year, we’re starting a couple weeks earlier, and we’ve raised our fundraising goal to $5,000. In addition to riding and raising funds, is also sponsoring Team Ronald, and we’ll be wearing a logo on our bike shirt sleeves. RMDH is a great organization, and my wife and I are going to do what we can to support it.

If you aren’t familiar with this non-profit organization, the Ronald McDonald House provides support and care for families who have children battling cancer.  According to the RMDH website, the organization’s mission is to “support each family and coordinate emotional and physical services, psychological care, ministry support, wellness programs, tutors, music, art, transportation, activities for siblings, holiday and birthday parties and camaraderie for parents struggling with their child’s cancer diagnosis.”

Put simply, the people at Ronald McDonald House help make the lives of child cancer patients and their families better (and easier) when they need it most – as they fight cancer.

I ask you to please consider making a donation to the Ronald McDonald House of New York to help us help them. No donation is too small (or too big!). I know they will really appreciate anything you can give, and I personally appreciate your generosity.
