Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland

Why run for us?

We provide accommodation for families across Ireland while their child is being treated for long term illnesses in hospital in Dublin. This alleviates the financial stress of accommodation, food, parking and laundry for families of children in hospital far from home. So that they can cope better and focus on the needs of their sick child.


What support will you receive?

We want to give you the best possible experience, from training to run.  

  • Dedicated fundraising platform
  • T-shirt
  • One to one fundraising support 
  • House experience to understand the needs of the families you are supporting
  • Pre run dinner
  • Regular motivational emails


Our fundraising targets?

We want to continue to support the running of our existing house which serves 18 families daily.  We have served over 4495 since opening in 2004 and an average stay in 23 nights with the longest being 889.  Any surplus fundraising will be designated for our new house which will allow us to house 52 families every night.
