Urban Moto Imports supports Ronald McDonald House Charities
Urban Moto Imports (UMI), distributor of Royal Enfield motorcycles in Australia and New Zealand, is once again pleased to be a supporter of ‘Ronald McDonald House Charities’ (RMHC) for 2017.
UMI recognises the tremendous contribution that the RMHC makes to the community, and is proud to be able to also give back to the community. The cornerstone program of RMHC, ‘Ronald McDonald House’, provides a ‘home away from home’ for families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals.
In 1981 the first Australian Ronald McDonald House opened in Sydney’s Camperdown. There are now 16 Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia and more than 360 houses worldwide.
Other programs include:
- Ronald McDonald Family Room – a relaxing haven within hospitals giving families a break from the stress of many hours spent by their child’s bedside.
- Ronald McDonald Learning Program – helping more than 1,200 children on any given week catch-up on missed schooling following a serious illness.
- Ronald McDonald Family Retreat – providing families with seriously ill children a week’s free accommodation at one of four family retreats across Australia, enabling them to reconnect and enjoy a holiday when they most need it and can least afford it.
As sponsors of RMHC since 2015, UMI has donated Royal Enfield motorcycles to be auctioned each year, assisting in raising record amounts for RMHC. This year UMI will once again donate a Royal Enfield motorcycle, namely a new Classic 500 Redditch Edition.
