As part of CyberChill’s support to the Ronald McDonald House Charity, staff members took part in a Golf Day to raise much needed funds for the charity.
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is an independent charity that helps families of seriously ill children, keeping families together whilst having easy access to the care their child needs. Customers can often see the charity collection boxes in McDonald’s restaurants.
The cornerstone program of RMHC provides a ‘home away from home’ for families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals. In 1981 the first Australian Ronald McDonald House opened in Sydney’s Camperdown. There are now 19 Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia and more than 360 houses worldwide.
Ronald McDonald House Charity programs include:
- Ronald McDonald Family Room - a relaxing haven within hospitals giving families a break from the stress of many hours spent by their child’s bedside
- Ronald McDonald Learning Program - helping more than 1,300 children on any given week catch-up on missed schooling following a serious illness
- Ronald McDonald Family Retreat - providing families with seriously ill children a week’s free accommodation at one of four family retreats across Australia, enabling them to reconnect and enjoy a holiday when they most need it and can least afford it
“When you get to know the good work that the Ronald McDonald House Charity does, it’s a no brainer to get involved with such a worthy cause” says Craig Pickford, Managing Director of CyberChill. “You only have to read some of the website supporter’s stories to see how you, one day, may need the support of this amazing charity.”
