Eagle Water Treatment Systems and its Ontario distributors were proud to take part in the 2016 Ronald McDonald House Charities Hamilton Golf Tournament which helped to raise over $125,000.00 . This is a great experience for all and a very worthy cause as the money goes to help families have a home away from home during very challenging times. It is through sponsorship programs like these that we can all come together in our community to support these great community efforts.
Ronald McDonald House Charities Hamilton (RMHCH) is part of a network of 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada. We provide a “home away from home” for families of children who are seriously ill and being treated at nearby hospitals. Built in 1993 and located next to McMaster Children’s Hospital, RMHCH is independently owned and operated by Kid’s Care Oncology Central West Ontario and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, managed by a small staff team and supported by a full complement of dedicated volunteers.
RMHCH expanded from our original 15 bedroom home to a 40 bedroom house and reopened in the Spring of 2012 to serve more families in their time of need.
Try to imagine being a child with a chronic or life-threatening illness – frightened, hurting, questioning. Now try to imagine being a parent – short on answers, long on helplessness and scared beyond words. What both need most are each other. RMHCH provides families in crisis a home to everyday moments when life is far from ordinary.
