    Celebrating RMHC families to raise money and awareness

    Sometimes, fundraising becomes something more. Something bigger. Something that can raise both money and awareness. And sometimes, these things can be a little fun. Throughout the year, we’re happy to celebrate all the good that is being done with some very special events

    and outings. Whether it’s our dedicated Team RMHC runners and volunteers at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon or a relaxing day playing 18 holes at our RMHC Family Golf Outing, we found ways to make doing good feel even better.
