Did you know that UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital is the ONLY large children’s hospital in Southern California without a Ronald McDonald House? Parents and families of our sickest children being treated at UCLA Mattel have to stay in the Hollywood, Pasadena or Long Beach house or are turned away entirely as these houses are typically at 100% capacity with the families of children at CHLA and their respective children’s hospitals. We want to bring a Ronald McDonald House to UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital!!!
For more than 40 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California has been dedicated to creating a community where children and their families embrace life and healing with a sense of hope, enthusiasm, courage and joy through the operation of Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, a Community Grant Board and four scholarship programs. When you participate in the Walk for Kids, you are showing your support for families who are facing the fear and uncertainty of having a seriously ill child.

Thank you for your support! We hope to see you at the 2019 Walk for Kids!
