The Ronald McDonald House of Providence (RMHP) Running Club promotes the benefits of health, wellness, fitness, and competition among people of all ages and abilities through running and walking. We support our members with motivation, encouragement, and coaching to attain personal goals and top performance. The Club provides an enjoyable social atmosphere while publicizing and supporting the mission of the Ronald McDonald House of Providence, a nonprofit organization that helps families with children facing serious illness. Most people don’t realize that the fantastic services the House provides depend primarily on contributions from outside the organization’s corporate namesake. Every member of the RMHP Running Club raises visibility for the House simply by wearing a club shirt at local races. Club volunteers also prepare dinner for House residents once a month; some have raised thousands of dollars in pledges for races like the Falmouth Road Race, Boston Marathon, Amica Marathon, and Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon.
