First National Real Estate has confirmed its sponsorship of Ronald McDonald House Charities’ 2018 Ride for Sick Kids in Northern New South Wales and South Australia as part of its overall national community support programme.

The ride fundraises in support of Ronald McDonald Houses in Newcastle, Tamworth and Adelaide, Family Rooms in the John Hunter Children’s Hospital and Gosford Hospitals, plus the charity’s Forster Family Retreat and Ronald McDonald Learning Program.

‘First National Real Estate is proud to have contributed more than $300,000 to the Ride for Sick Kids nationally over the past four years, and we’re delighted to continue this support’ said network chief executive, Ray Ellis

‘Our NSW and SA members are rallying behind the 2018 ride and looking forward to building upon community awareness of this vital programme that supports kids and their families during the most difficult of health challenges’.

The NSW ride starts in Grafton on Tuesday 11 September before traveling to Coffs Harbour, then Foster/Tuncurry and Nelson Bay before finishing in Newcastle on Saturday 15 September. In SA, the ride starts in Port Lincoln on 18 November before traveling over 1,000 kilometres to Adelaide where it finishes on the 24th.

Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation and support services to seriously ill children and their families nationally. Its services lift the burden of accommodation costs from families when they most need to provide their children with love and support.

‘When children are seriously ill and need medical care a long way from home, regional families can struggle with access to long-term accommodation and its costs’ said Mr Ellis.

‘By sponsoring the Ride for Sick Kids and helping raise awareness of the excellent work done by Ronald McDonald House, we’re helping secure this important accommodation resource’.
