Cycle for Hope is a virtual, month-long cycling event to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central
Illinois (RMHCCI). Participants are challenged to ride 100 miles in the month of October while fundraising for RMHCCI.
You can rack up those miles by cycling indoors (perhaps with your favorite Peloton instructor!) or safely on the road in
one day, a weekend, or throughout the entire month. You can create a team of 4 to ride and fundraise together, or you
can do this on your own.

April was National Volunteer Month!
Our regular volunteer opportunities have continued to be suspended for the safety of our guests and their families. However, we cannot stress enough how much we miss and value the work our volunteers do at both the Peoria and Springfield Houses. From greeting guests and helping keep things tidy to making meals and stocking our shelves with supplies, you are the heart of what makes both central Illinois Houses a home. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything you do and we hope to see you soon!
In June 2019, Katie Hahn was surprised to learn that she was in labor with her daughter, Nora, a full two months before her due date. Because Nora was born early, she needed to be monitored in the NICU at St. John’s hospital, which was about a 45-minute drive from Katie’s home in Decatur.
