Walk or Run for a Cause and Join Team RMHC!

Team RMHC is a training group for walkers and runners who want to give back to their community. We train, we fundraise, and we have a lot of fun along the way. When you join Team RMHC, you receive training guidance from Columbus Running Company and fundraising support from Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. CRC hosts weekly group runs and walks during training seasons, adding a supportive group element to your training.

Team RMHC is a running group who has the opportunity to train together while fundraising for families of seriously ill children staying at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. Since the beginning of Team RMHC, runners have raised over $135,000. That’s over 1,350 nights of rest for our RMHC families!

Team RMHC is open to anyone! It does not matter if you are a walker, runner, beginner, advanced; we all are being physical for the same reason. All of our teammates are asked to raise at least a minimum of $250 towards Team RMHC during their racing season. It doesn’t matter if you are running in one of our races or training for one of your own.

As a member of Team RMHC you receive many benefits. With the help of Columbus Running Company, Team RMHC is provided training plans to assist with their races through a weekly update and information provided by Columbus Running Company. This season, participants are training for the Capital City Half Marathon,  Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon, and/or the Columbus 10k along with many other 5ks.
