Rock the House Run™
Calgary's favourite family run!
Join over 1,500 Calgarians as they run and walk in Calgary's favourite family run in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities Southern Alberta. You'll get to unleash your inner rockstar racing past live bands, dancers and street performers (we told you it was awesome!) all while supporting families staying at the House.
Rock the House Run is a family-friendly race open to runners and walkers of all ages and experience levels. Register the whole family in our 10K & 5K runs, 5K walk or 1K McDonald's Go Active Walk (perfect for little legs).
All funds raised directly support families staying at Ronald McDonald House while their children receive medical treatment at a Calgary hospital. To learn more about the House, please visit www.rmhsouthernalberta.org.
The cost of having a sick child in the hospital and being away from home really adds up. One room for one night at Ronald McDonald House costs $182 but our families only pay a nominal $12 fee per night.
Collecting pledges helps keep costs low for families, allowing them to stay together during one of life's most stressful times...when a child is in the hospital. The more pledges you get, the more chances you have to win awesome prizes and incentives!
Register today for Rock the House Run and you'll get your very own customizable Pledge Page to share with your friends, family and colleagues. Or, if you prefer, collect pledges manually using our Printable Pledge Form.
