Keeping Families Close

Since it began in 2012, the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon & Community Running Festival has raised more than $1.1 million for Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland (RMHSEQ) and dozens of other charities and local community groups. In 2017 a record number of runners helped raised $230,000 and our long-term goal is to be able to raise $1 million a year for dozens of worthy charities and beneficiaries.

RMHSEQ operates three houses that provide essential accommodation and support services for seriously ill or injured children and their families who live more than 50km from the treating hospital in Brisbane. These are essential services for families living in remote and rural areas who need to travel to Brisbane for treatment.

Every dollar has an impact and makes a big difference towards keeping families close. To enter an event click here or to show your support by donating to a fellow participant, click here.
