NEWS RELEASE FROM THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

Members of the Girlfriends Fitness Center in Carthage, MO will be presenting Ronald McDonald House located at 34th & Jackson in Joplin a donation in the amount of $415.50 on Wednesday, May 14, at 1pm.

"This (the $415.50) is our donation raised from pledges made for the number of miles each "girlfriend" walked," said Cindy Huntley, owner of Girlfriends Fitness Center located in Carthage, MO. "It was a fun thing that we wanted to do as an incentive to keep exercising during the winter months. We kept track of the miles and walked 1,543 miles in two months."

"We appreciated girlfriends selecting as their charity of choice. This donation will help us provide the necessities our families need while they are away from home dealing with a sick child" said Shirley Hylton, House Program Manager. "Carthage ranks as the third highest city in the state of Missouri for families who use our services."

The Ronald McDonald House of the Four States provides a home-away-from-home for the families of seriously ill children in local Mercy and Freeman Hospital. Twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, the House offers these families a refuge from the hospital - a room of their own, kitchen and laundry facilities, and a playroom for the children.
