Run For the House

Are you going to be out and about Saturday morning?

Sorry for the late notice, but there's still time to grab the kids and come down to Hawk Island Park on Cavanaugh Road in Lansing Saturday morning for a 5k Run/Walk.  There's a kids' run and other fun activities for the cherubs and it's great exercise for you to start your weekend.  Remember: ALL PROCEEDS GO THE RONALD McDONALD HOUSE!  The RMH is a place where families can stay (free of charge if they can't afford to pay) when they're children are in the hospital.  Often times the child is in the hospital for a serious procedure that takes days or weeks and the House allows parents to stay somewhere with a homely atmosphere for a very limited cost.  If you know a family who's used a RMH ask them what they thought and you'll likely get a heartwarming testimonial.

The House is a self-sustaining charity and we pay a mortgage and have bills like everyone else.  That's why these charity events, like the Run/Walk and the Golf Classic in July, are so important.  So, if you get a chance, come on out to hawk Island Park and run, walk or just have fun.  Registration starts at 8:45.

I'll be there!
