Draw strength from others facing similar challenges

Our heroes

We are so lucky to have had the support of many wonderful individuals, communities and businesses over the years who have gone the extra mile for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

These House Heroes have reached out to their communities and raised both awareness and funds for our charity.

We wanted to thank each and every one of our House Heroes for playing a key role in helping us keep Kiwi families close.
