Community Fundraising Events

Anyone Can Host a Community Fundraising Event

It's a wonderful way to support families with seriously-ill children.  Community Events Calendar

You can raise money for the Ronald McDonald House in your own community

Get your co-workers together or rally your friends and family to support families with seriously-ill children. Energetic groups from across the upper Midwest – including former families, work groups, sports teams and students – support us by hosting fundraisers on our behalf. From 5K runs to fishing tournaments to car shows, these events put the fun in fundraising. Planning and hosting a fundraiser allows you to do something you enjoy while simultaneously making a positive impact on families.
