 “Run For The Kids 2004”

On August 15, 2004 ABATE of Delaware will sponsor the 8th Annual “Run For The Kids”. This event is a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House and the A.I. duPont Hospital for Children. Our past seven annual events have been very successful for both the Children in the hospital and the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.

The first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia, PA. in 1974. Since then, over 150 such houses have opened worldwide to assist families and children in their time of need. The Ronald House of Delaware opened it’s doors in the mid 1980’s. It serves as a “Home Away From Home” for families of seriously ill or injured children receiving treatment in the Wilmington Delaware area. Located on Rockland Road, across from the Alfred I. duPont Institute, parents find support and understanding from families in similar situations, as well as safe inexpensive lodging.

Please review the “Run For The Kids” flyer for all the details as well as the House Wish List. You can bring any of the listed items to Sign-In at Mikes Famous Harley Davidson or call Jim-Bob (302) 378-3701 for other arrangements and details or contact any of the ABATE of Delaware Officers listed on the flyer.

Please share this information with your family, friends and business associates.
