The Horizon Helps team has been looking forward to the 23rd Annual Ronald McDonald House 5K since the date was marked on the Races2Run race calendar.
All proceeds from the race go to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware which provides safe, affordable “homes away from homes” to families of seriously or chronically ill or injured children who are being treated at area hospitals. The program operates three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms within pediatric units of hospitals across Delaware. It gives families a comfortable place to reflect and rejuvenate together after often spending many hours of the day alongside loved ones at the hospital. The facilities also provide families the opportunity to focus more energy, care and love towards those affected without the interruptions of everyday tasks.
Horizon Services and the Horizon Helps team will be on-site on race day to donate and water to runners and spectators who come out to support the very worthy cause. Adults and children of all ages are urged to participate in this year’s event which takes place along the Wilmington Riverfront and features a special guest appearance by “Ronald McDonald” himself!
