Since 2001, the Run for the House has raised thousands of dollars to give families of seriously ill children a warm, safe place to stay. The event now attracts more than 1,000 runners each year. The 5K Run/Walk, 10K run and Kids Mile are part of the Playmakers Race Series.

Help make a difference for families of seriously ill children. Your participation in the Run for the House 5K Run/Walk and 10K Run will help the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan provide a home-away-from-home for those families who have a child being hospitalized or receiving treatment at Lansing-area hospitals and clinics. The House offers a comfortable, inexpensive and private place for families to sleep, eat and relax. Families find a caring atmosphere where they can receive strength and encouragement from others who are also going through difficult times.
