Lassam family

You're invited to go the (social) distance for families at RMH BC!

Assemble your team to move 73 km in June while rising funds to support the families that stay at the 73-room Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon every night.

Families who stay at RMH BC are uprooted from 210 different communities throughout BC and the Yukon. Help us raise awareness and funds for these families who are far from home due to the serious health needs of their sick child.

The Step Up For Families campaign will bring these communities together for a virtual event that can take place from the comfort of your home and at a safe social distance!

How to track and submit your distances

Keep track of your distances using your favourite fitness tracking app or device (e.g. Strava, FitBit). Then, every time you complete a few KMs, submit your results here to appear on our leaderboard (updated every weekday at noon) and earn badges. All distances covered by individual team members count towards the goal of 73km.

If you are tracking with Strava, you can also join our RMH BC Run Club.
