McRunner Visits the Hope House

April 18, 2011

Pictures from Joe “McRunner” D’Amico as he visited the Hope House on April 8th.

On April 8th, Joe “McRunner” D’Amico stopped by our Ronald McDonald House near Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital and presented the charity with a check for over $40,000!  For those of you unfamiliar with “McRunner”, for the last month of his training for the LA Marathon, Joe ate only McDonald’s.  With growing awareness, Joe turned his new found fame into a way to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.  Thanks to Joe’s efforts, over $40,000 was raised.  It costs the charity around $50 to host a family for one night, which means, thanks to Joe’s efforts 800 families will be able to stay at our Ronald McDonald House.  THANK YOU JOE!
