Ronald McDonald House Ride

Proud to be the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House Charity Motorcycle Ride. The RMH Ride is held annually in New York Mills, MN on the second Saturday of June. This year we celebrated 20 years of dedicated volunteer work that provides for families of the Ronald McDonald House of the Red River Valley in Fargo, ND.

The 20th Annual Ronald McDonald House RIDE was held on June 12, 2021.  The RIDE Committee would like to thank everyone that enabled them to raise $135,000.00 for the Ronald McDonald House in Fargo.  Since it’s humble beginnings The RIDE has raised nearly $2,000,000.00 for the Ronald McDonald House.

Plans are underway for the 21st  Annual RMH RIDE which will be held on June 11, 2022.   All events are co-sponsored and held at the New York Mills VFW Post #3289.  The RIDE winds it’s way through the beautiful woods and lakes country of central Minnesota.  The route for 2022 is currently being planned.  Three nights of live music is also part of the celebration along with ample camping.

A 2022 Harley Davidson Street Glide motorcycle is the Grand Raffle Prize.  This year $20 tickets will be available for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers. Big cash prizes are also part of the raffle.

Many events are in the works including another season-long Fun Run.  

The event is made possible by the overwhelming support of area businesses.  A huge Thank You goes out to all who donated cash along with live and silent auction items and our volunteers.
