See why fun matters

Did you know that 65% of Canadian families live outside a city with a children’s hospital? So when a child gets sick, they often have to travel hours to get treatment. Our 15 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada give families a place to stay close to the hospital where their child is being treated. 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located in hospitals across the country give families a place to rest and relax just steps from their child's bedside.
