July 25 - July 29 2020 Buffalo, NY 14222 US

Ronald McDonald House 5k Run

Presented by Orville's Home Appliances


It's Virtual and it's bigger and better than ever!


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s event will be held as a VIRTUAL 5k Run and Walk!
What is a Virtual Run/Walk

A virtual race is one that can be run, jogged or walked at any location you choose. Our virtual run is staged completely on the honor system. By registering, we assume you will complete the 5K distance of 3.1 miles at one time/in one go.

Registration Fee

Registration is $20.00. 

Individuals who have already registered for the run will automatically be transitioned to a virtual runner.

Online registration closes 7/28 at midnight.

Run Dates

You have 5 days to choose from to complete your run, walk or jog!  The run kicks off on Saturday, July 25th and you have until 8:00pm on Wednesday, July 29th to complete your run and record your time.

Run in the morning, the afternoon or any time you want! This is your chance to schedule your run around your time and the weather! No need to run in the rain!

YOUR "Course"

Participants will be able to complete the 5K run or walk wherever they want during the five days of the event! You can choose to run or jog in your neighborhood or at a park. If you want to get creative, you could even hike, walk your dog, or use your treadmill to complete the 5K distance of 3.1 miles.

For participants who have done our race in the past, we encourage you to wear your favorite Ronald McDonald House 5K Run cap, volunteer T-shirt or red and white stripped socks to show your support!

Fund the Run

With 3 options to choose from in the banners above and below, fundraising for RMHC families has never been easier! As one of our largest events of the year, we count on the funds raised from the Run to support the families who depend on us. Since this is a virtual event this year, this option will be crucial in helping us achieve our fundraising goal of $100,000.

Not a runner, jogger or walker, no problem! You don't need to be a registered runner, jogger or walker to become a fundraiser.

The Top Team Fundraiser and the Top Individual Fundraiser will receive a $100 gift certificate generously donated by Wegmans.
