How It Works

Every month, New Zealand families will travel 100,556KM for their child to receive hospital treatment away from home.

House to House is a virtual fundraising event which challenges you to support families staying with RMHC New Zealand. Walk, run, bike or swim 210KM to help us reach our collective goal of 100,556KM while raising $210 to help us support families with a hospitalised child.

Clock up the number of kilometres families travel to a Ronald McDonald House, and raise money as you go. You can sign up as an individual or a team and create your own fundraising page. From the 1st – 31st March, every KM you cover will count towards your target, and RMHC New Zealand’s 100,556KM target. To keep track of your distances, use a FitBit, download the free Strava or MapMyFitness apps, and your distance moved will be automatically updated on your fundraising page. Alternatively, you can log your distances manually and enter this onto your page.
