This weekend a group of eight VanderSatters and three companions/assistants set out to cycle 500 kilometers in 24 hours straight through the Netherlands. And we were not alone. 1500 people where either cycling or running, day and night. Literally going the distance. It is called Homeride and it was amazing.
Amazing, but absolutely nothing compared to the love and care that is provided by the volunteers at the Ronald McDonald houses in the world. When your child is sick, you want the best care possible – even if it is hundreds or thousands of miles away. The Ronald McDonald House allows families to access specialized medical treatment by providing a place to stay at little or sometimes no cost. One of our teammembers has spent several weeks in the house in Leiden and this was the way to show gratitude.
