Kilometers for Kids 2021
Kilometers for Kids is a group of parents on a mission to raise funds and awareness for Ronald McDonald House. In 2020, they collectively road their bicycles more than 2054km during the months of June and July, raising more than $16,000 for Ronald McDonald House.
Kilometers for Kids 2021 will see the team once again bicycle for Ronald McDonald House. But this time, 7 riders and 5 support volunteers will bicycle 1000 km from the Northwest tip of Newfoundland, all the way to Ronald McDonald House in St. John’s on the far east coast, in a relay-style bike ride fundraiser. They will also be accompanied by a support team for added safety.
This team understands how difficult the added challenge of distance is to a family with a sick child in Newfoundland and Labrador. They will therefore challenge themselves physically to ultimately go this distance by bicycle to raise funds to keep families sick children together and near the medical care and resources they need at Ronald McDonald House.
The team will stop at a different location towards the end of each day to rest for the night and prepare for the upcoming ride. You can find a complete schedule of all stops below.
