Lights of Love 5K and Family Fun Run
Jingle all the way
Thank you for making the 6th annual Lights of Love 5K and Family Fun Run the best year yet! More than 1,500 braved the freezing weather to run or walk to show their support for families with critically ill or injured children. Together, we have raised more than $275,000 to help Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas continue to do great work for these families.
Will you help us reach our stretch goal of $300,000? Please turn in any outstanding checks or donations to RMHC Austin this week. If you, your friends and family still want to contribute, it's not too late. A gift of $10 will provide the cost of a night's stay for a family at the Ronald McDonald House. Together we can give hospitalized children what they need most - their families
