Ride for Sick Kids
Saturday 23 September 7.30am – 12.30pm
Balance Mayfield, on the lawn
On Saturday 23 September, join us at Balance Collective Mayfield for a very special cycle class - The Ride for Sick Kids.
This event is a fundraising initiative for Ronald McDonald House Northern NSW, and stationary bikes for the five-hour class will be ‘sold’ to individuals or groups for $500 each, and all money raised will go straight to Ronald McDonald House.
So, if you’re up for a five hour cycle challenge, or want to get a group of friends or colleagues together, sign up here.
A number of Balance instructors and local celebrities will also participate in the event, while if you wish to don some unusual gym attire, the word on the street is that there’s going to be a pretty strong super hero theme running throughout the day.
About Ronald McDonald House
Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) is an independent charity that helps families of seriously ill children. The charity helps keep families close to each other and the care their child needs.
The cornerstone program of RMHC, the Ronald McDonald House®, provides a ‘home away from home’ for families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals. In 1981 the first Australian Ronald McDonald House opened in Sydney’s Camperdown. There are now 16 Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia and more than 360 houses worldwide.
Other programs include:
Ronald McDonald Family Room® - a relaxing haven within hospitals giving families a break from the stress of many hours spent by their child’s bedside.
Ronald McDonald Learning Program - helping more than 1,200 children on any given week catch-up on missed schooling following a serious illness.
Ronald McDonald® Family Retreat - providing families with seriously ill children a week’s free accommodation at one of four family retreats across Australia, enabling them to reconnect and enjoy a holiday when they most need it and can least afford it.
