|In 2011, over 1,400 community members, corporate partners, patients and families attended this event and raised over $80,000. We are excited to announce that the 5th annual 5k event will be held June 3, 2012. This year’s event will once again benefit The Ronald McDonald House® near Hope and Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital. We hope you will join us this year in helping to raise $100,000.|
Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital is the largest freestanding pediatric medical facility in the south and southwest suburbs of Chicago. The hospital offers a Level 111c neonatal intensive care unit, one of the largest pediatric cardiology programs in Illinois, and an internationally recognized pediatric hematology and oncology division. The 69-bed institution has expanded its services to families by partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago & Northwest Indiana (RMHC-CNI).
The Ronald McDonald House® near Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital provides a “home away from home” for families of children receiving treatment at Hope Hospital. This 16 bedroom House offers comfortable rooms where families can get a good night’s rest knowing their child is close by. The money raised from this event helps with the operational costs of the House.
Thank you all for your interest and help in any way you can. It means so much to us. Let's help reach the oveall goal for Advocate Hope Children's and Ronald McDonald House.
