CEO Walk In My Shoes

I'm fundraising for RMHC

I became a father in 2018 and am now lucky enough to have 2 beautiful, healthy children. Every parents worse nightmare is their children getting sick and I couldn’t imagine the difficulties these families face on a day to day basis. Many of these families have to relocate to be closer to the vital, lifesaving care that their child needs and that’s where Ronald McDonald House helps. Ronald McDonald House provides essential care and support for families only a few steps away from the hospital and most importantly it keeps families together.

It is a warm and supportive home-away-from-home for families of children travelling to Randwick for treatment at the Sydney Children’s Hospital. It enables ‘family-focused care’ allowing families to stay by their child’s side during their treatment at the Sydney Children’s Hospital.

The communal facilities help to create a social and supportive environment and offer a few of the comforts of home that make life just that little bit easier. Accommodation is free for these eligible families and the charity relies on donations and fundraising to continue.

I have decided to take a walk in these families shoes and will be having a 22hour stay at Ronald McDonald Randwick where I’ll be cooking for families, living their life’s and seeing what it takes to run this charity providing care and support 365 days a year.
