This radio, digital, and peer-to-peer fundraiser will create awareness about the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho, a 501(c)(3) organization, and the programs they support. The goal of the 5th Annual Fundraising for Families three-day event is to raise $70k to support families of ill or injured children by keeping them together in times of medical need!
The Family Room at EIRMC is just down the hall from the neonatal intensive care unit. In 2023 more than 765 families were served at the Family Room, for a combined nearly 3,460 visits. The Family Room provides families with a home-like environment where they can get something to eat, take a shower, do laundry, watch television, take a nap, or even stay the night, all within steps of their ill or injured child. Any family with an ill or injured child at EIRMC is able to use the Family Room, whether they live right in Idaho Falls or traveled from outside the area.
Having a child in the hospital is a huge financial burden for families. There is no cost for families to use RMHC of Idaho’s services and generous donations from the community make this possible. 100% of the funds raised stay local to support RMHC of Idaho programs.
