STep up for families



Going the (Social) Distance for RMH BC

Assemble your team to move 73 km in June while raising funds to support the families that stay at the 73-room Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon every night.



The Step Up For Families campaign will bring these communities together for a virtual event that can take place from the comfort of your home and at a safe social distance.


Families who stay at RMH BC are uprooted from 210 different communities throughout BC and the Yukon. Help us raise awareness and funds for these families who are far from home due to the serious health needs of their sick child.
