Ronald McDonald House

Dear Readers: I wanted to let you know that one of our sponsors, Beau-coup, has signed up to participate in the Big Sur half marathon on November 15, 2009 to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House, which creates a home-away-from-home for families of children with life-threatening illnesses receiving specialized treatment at local hospitals. It costs $95 per family for one night at the Ronald McDonald House, but the family is only charged $10 per night, and no family is ever turned away for non-payment.

Their goal is to raise enough money to support 10 families for one year at the Ronald McDonald House (a sum that amounts to $36,500.00). Beau-coup has generously agreed to donate $9000, but they need help to raise the rest of the money. If you are interested in donating, please go to http://www.firstgiving.com/beaucoup (and all donations are 100% tax deductible). Thank you!

I stayed here when I was sick with cancer as a child so I could receive care 4 hours away from where my parents lived. It's a wonderful organization... :)
