Who Are We?
Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Florida keeps thousands of families close each year by providing a home away from home for families with children receiving medical treatment in Orlando. We have three RMH House locations in Orlando on the campuses of AdventHealth for Children, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, and Nemours Children’s Hospital.
The History of the
House that Love Built® In 1974, Philadelphia Eagles player, Fred Hill, and his wife, Fran, were delivered news no parent ever wants to hear. Their three-year-old daughter, Kim, was diagnosed with leukemia. Although they lived near All Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia and were able to stay close to Kim, other families they met in the hospital had traveled long distances and could not afford hotel rooms or meals. The Hills saw firsthand families that were sleeping in waiting rooms and in their cars while eating out of vending machines. Kim’s physician, Dr. Audrey Evans, rallied with the Hills, Jim Murray, GM of the Philadelphia Eagles, and the McDonald’s Regional Manager for support of her vision. With St Patrick’s Day right around the corner, McDonald’s would sell green milkshakes—dubbed the Shamrock Shake—to raise funds to build a house near the hospital. Monies donated from the promotion helped make the first Ronald McDonald House a reality.
