Wapakoneta Elementary – Ronald’s Walk

Ronald McDonald House Charities Dayton


For 9 years, Wapakoneta Elementary School has been hosting “Ronald’s Walk”, the culmination of a year of fundraising and pull-tab collecting by students, staff members, parents and the community for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton. In 2016, Wapakoneta raised $14,773.86 (worth 100 nights of stay for families) and collected almost 1,839 pounds of pull tabs. (That’s 2,853,643 tabs!)

Over the years, Wapakoneta Elementary has raised a grand total of $138,431.76 for RMHC Dayton. That could mean nearly 923 nights of stay for our guest families.

Thank you Wapakoneta Elementary School students, staff, Jeff and Mary Monfort owners of the Wapakoneta McDonald’s, and all others involved in this wonderful act of kindness. Your community’s support means the world to our team and the families that stay at our home-away-from-home to be near their hospitalized children!
