Ronald McDonald House
Fun Run in Central Park
on Nov 9
We are very excited to share that this Fall our school PS 116 will have its own team in the 21st Annual Ronald McDonald House Kids Charity Fun Run to benefit Ronald McDonald House New York. This is the second year we have a PS 116 team and we are hoping for another great turnout form our community like last year!
This is an amazing charity event that allows our kids to do a short race in Central Park and raise money to support the Ronald McDonald House which provides temporary housing for pediatric cancer patients and their families while the child receives treatment for cancer at NYC’s medical centers. 100% of all donations go directly to Ronald McDonald House New York. The Ronald McDonald House New York has had 40 years of service and housed more than 35,000 children from all 50 states and over 70 countries.
Please join us on our school’s team—and if your child cannot attend please consider making a donation in support of our school’s team and this great charity. A $35 donation = 1 night stay for a family at Ronald McDonald House.
