Welcome to Team RMHC!!
At Ronald McDonald House Charities, we are honored to keep families close to each other and the care they need. By choosing to compete for Team RMHC, you will give sick or injured children and their families what they need most – each other. Family is Medicine.
Team RMHC is a group of dedicated and committed individuals who have the opportunity to train together while fundraising for families with a sick or injured child staying at Ronald McDonald House Charities Newfoundland and Labrador. Since the beginning of Team RMHC, members have raised over $41,000. That’s over 200 nights of togetherness for our RMHC families!
Team RMHC is open to anyone! It does not matter if you are a walker, runner, rower, beginner, advanced; we all are being physical for the same reason. All teammates are asked to raise a minimum amount towards RMHC during their racing season —$250 for Tely Ten participants and/or $750 for Regatta Rowers. It doesn’t matter if you are participating in one of the designated races or training for one of your own.
As a member of Team RMHC you receive many benefits. With the support of the presenting sponsor McDonald’s Team RMHC is provided with official team wear and marketing support!
Why join Team RMHC? Every step you take, or row you make, will help keep families with a sick child close to each other and the medical care and resources they need, when they need it the most. You have the opportunity to make new friends as you train and fundraise together and we have great incentives and awards as you reach your endurance and fundraising goals.
