Ronald McDonald House provides a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children who are hospitalised or undergoing extended treatment at Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin. Families are able to stay for the duration of their child’s stay in hospital. Ronald McDonald House provides a supportive environment for these families. The first Irish Ronald McDonald House was a 15,000 square feet stand alone building in the grounds of Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin. The House can accommodate up to 16 families in en-suite family bedrooms with communal kitchens, dining areas and living areas. It also has a toddlers’ room and full laundry facilities.
Since opening in November 2004 the House has been “home” to over 1000 families from all over Ireland. Some have stayed for just a few nights, while others stay for 7 or 8 months! The beauty of the house is that each room accommodates 4 so grannies, granddads, brothers and sisters can all help in the child’s recovery.
The annual running costs are in excess of €300,000. They are very dependent on the continuing support of all to cover the ongoing costs of running the House.
The Charity Cycle, in its tenth year, is an opportunity for those who have stayed in the house , or those who know a family who have stayed in the house, to give something back and join in an event which is great fun and healthy.
Get the bike out or borrow one , and join in the fun for two hours on the 13th May 2018, everyone is welcome. Helmets are compulsary.
SAFETY AND FUN !
