When Ozzie had to undergo treatment for lymphoblastic leukaemia, staying at Ronald McDonald House was a life saver and allowed his parents to be by his side to make sure he continued to be brave and happy, despite the challenges of his treatment.
Ronald McDonald House Charities help keep families together.
And now we’re asking local businesses to help us, to help kids like Ozzie! All you need to do is get involved with the Ride for Sick Kids.
Our challenge to you is to use your Two Wheels and decide on your Two Goals - how many kilometres you want to ride and how much money you want to raise. By taking on the challenge your business will be making a BIG impact on families with seriously ill children - some of the most vulnerable people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Your business decides how much money you want to raise and how many kilometres you want your team to ride throughout the month of September. Riders who fundraise $500 or more get their very own Ride for Sick Kids T-shirt to wear throughout the challenge. The goals are up to you – because every dollar counts.
Raised so far
Why not challenge your staff to get on a bike and Ride for Sick Kids during September.
It's a great opportunity to get out and be healthy. You can ride on the road, you can ride in a gym, you can ride at home, it doesn’t matter - just make sure you're practising social distancing and adhering to COVID-19 recommendations to make sure everyone stays safe.
What does matter is that you accept our challenge of Two Wheels, Two Goals and get involved? You are riding to help out those who can’t ride themselves, the sicks kids and their families who use Ronald McDonald House every day of the year.
This is a great opportunity to organise some team building activities, especially if your staff have been dispersed and working from home and it's all in the name of charity (and fitness!)
Your staff can head down to the local gym on their lunch break or before or after work, to jump on a spin bike and raise funds for sick kids.
Challenge your colleagues to ride, with a donation for every kilometre they ride in September.
