Despite the cold and windy conditions this morning, many people gathered at the Lisle Park District for a fun run benefitting the Ronald McDonald Family Room in Edward Hospital.
“The past 4 years we’ve served over 4,000 families and then through this event we’re going to be able to serve so many more because we earn money and it helps a lot,” said Marguerite Obrien, Teen Board Chairman of Teen Board Chair Edward Hospital.
The family room serves as a haven of respite and hospitality for families whose children and newborns are receiving treatment at the hospital.
The event was organized by the Teen Board Chair of Edward Hospital who says this is one of their largest fundraising events each year.
