Radisson Blu International Larnaka Marathon is delighted to announce the cooperation with Ronald McDonald House Charities®Cyprus and the renaming of the Fun Race 1KM to RMHC® Fun Race 1KM!
RMHC® Fun Race 1KM is available for the parents of the children that will participate in the McDonaldsTM Kids Race 1KM and to the adults that want to be a part of the fun and the celebration of the Larnaka Marathon.
Part of the proceeds of the RMHC® Fun Race 1KM will be given to RMHC®, a charity that has helped thousands of families with children suffering from serious health issues to keep together during the recovery in more than 60 countries around the world!
RMHC® creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. Recognising how important is the constant presence of a child’s family in such trying times, RMHC® has been creating Family Rooms & Family Houses which are always located inside or next to hospitals where children are being treated as well as the Care Mobile which are mobile units that can drive to locations where medical care is not readily available. All spaces are specially designed to offer services to the families of children.
RMHC’s core values are to focus on the critical needs of children, offering a diversity of programs as well as celebrating the staff, volunteers and donors who make them possible. Staying true to its heritage of responsibility it is very important for RMHC® to operate with accountability and transparency.
The first major project of RMHC® Cyprus was the creation of a Pediatric Clinic for children with heart disease at the Archbishop Makarios III Hospital, which was officially launched in October 2014.
RMHC® Cyprus is currently working towards creating an RMHC house near the Archbishop Makarios III Hospital, which will provide accommodation and care for families from all around Cyprus, so that they can be close to their children when treated at the hospital.
