About Rock the House Run™

Join over 1,300 Calgarians as they run and walk in Calgary's favourite family run in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southern & Central Alberta. You'll get to unleash your inner rockstar racing past live bands, dancers and street performers 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 Run, 5K Run and Walk or 1K Walk (perfect for little legs).

All funds raised directly support the hundreds of families with sick children who come through our doors each year. To learn more about how we keep families close, please visit www.ahomeawayfromhome.org.

Pledge Program sponsored by CF Market Mall

The toll of having a sick child in the hospital and being away from home quickly adds up. That's where Ronald McDonald House comes in. Our families pay just $12/night to stay at the House while our generous supporters help cover the remaining $170/night it costs on average to operate each family suite. The House also provides stress relief and emotional support to families through recreational activites and opportunities to speak with other families in similar situations.

By collecting pledges, you help keep families close 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.

Raise $500 or more and win a prize!

Fundraise $500 or more for the House and you will receive a prize!
