RMHR History

For over 18 years, the Ronald McDonald House Ride community has been contributing countless hours, dollars, and prayers for the families of the Ronald McDonald House Charity of the Red River Valley.

A MILLION THANK YOU'S

As a whole, The RMH Ride has raised over $1.7 million over the past 18 years for the Red River Valley Ronald McDonald House Charity!

The Ronald McDonald House Ride started in 2002 when a local family friend was experiencing hardship while their child was sick – staying at the Ronald McDonald Charity House of the Red River Valley. We started with just 15 members making $3,300 our first year.

Today, we are overwhelmed with gratitude towards all of our community members; event goers, volunteers, event staff, and committee members, along with VFW Post #3289 of New York Mills, MN.

Without the generous acts of all these parties coming together, year after year, we wouldn’t be able to make the impact we do today.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE WIND
We’ve been disheartened by their loss, but uplifted by their spirits.

Covid-19 Update

Following much thought, discussion and prayer, The RMH Ride Committee is saddened to announce the 19th Annual Ronald McDonald House Ride that was scheduled for the weekend of June 13th in New York Mills, MN has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, the bike raffle will still be held at a later date in 2020. Tickets to win a New Harley Davidson Street Glide and other prizes will continue to be sold. If you have been saving pop tabs for the event those can be dropped off at the Karvonen Funeral Chapels in Wadena or New York Mills.
