If you look at any page within our website you will see this picture, not once but twice.

Look at the cards and messages on the wall behind her bed. If the camera could pull back you would see there are so many they stretch right up to the hospital ward's ceiling.

Those cards were sent to Rebekah at the time of her kidney transplant. All were sent from students at a school in California. The previous year Beck had been to The Golden State and met many of those who sent her the cards.

Those lovely cards and messages meant so much.

beck's family was one of the first to stay in the very first Ronald McDonald House in Britain. There are now 15 up and down the country with 366 world-wide.

When we were setting up OurRebekah to support Ronald McDonald House Charities UK we decided to have a fun run. Lots of people have fun runs, we decided to have ours in a fun city, the legendary City By The Bay - San Francisco California.

Our Golden Gate Bridge Fun Run is being organised to support Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham, England. Support does not only mean money. There are many other ways to show love.

We can not go to San Francisco without showing love to Ronald McDonald House San Francisco. Actually The City By The Bay has not one but two Ronald McDonald Houses.

 

Ronald McDonald House Scott Street San Francisco is seen here on the left and Ronald McDonald House Mission Bay San Francisco can be seen below.

The Scott Street House, opened in 1989, is a ten-bedroom house in the Pacific Heights neighbourhood of San Francisco, across the street from UCSF Medical Centre at Mount Zion where families can catch a free shuttle for a 20 minute ride to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay.

The Mission Bay House, located inside the new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay, was designed to offer brief respite for parents who will return quickly to their child’s bedside to hold their child’s hand during a blood draw, be there when she wakes up from surgery, or peek in to check on her in the middle of the night. It serves families in the first stages of crisis.

 The Mission Bay House includes:

  • Sleeping rooms that can accommodate up to 11 families a night.

  • A lounge that can be converted to an emergency sleeping room for a family arriving late at night.

  • A kitchen/dining room where volunteers and staff prepare three meals a day, creating community and ensuring that families receive the nourishment they need to remain strong for their child.

  • Washer-dryers visible from the kitchen/dining room through a window so parents can keep an eye on their laundry while enjoying a meal.

  • A meeting and activity room for arts and craft projects, workshops, overflow seating for meals, game and film nights, birthday parties, and more.

When we are in San Francisco in April 2018 we will be taking some small gifts of love to families in the two houses, gifts of love from here in Britain.

As we were setting up OurRebekah we met people who knew of Ronald McDonald Houses is different parts of the world. This vast international organisation reaches far and wide.

We will immediately include the two San Francisco houses in our Sign a Card programme, we will send little messages of love to families just as those from California did for Rebekah all those years ago.

Will you sign a card ? Cards will be available at all OurRebekah events as well as at any time you or your family would like to sign one.

Each time we go to a Sheffioeld Wednesday game we will buy some match-day programmes to give to families in the houses.

Who knows, one day we may be able to teach America that the word is football and not soccer !

 

OurRebekah is all about having fun, doing some amazing, crazy and often silly things. It is all about smiling and helping others to smile. As we do this we will support Ronald McDonald House Charities as it puts a loving arm around families with sick children in hospital, people who are going through some very hard times.

Spend a few moments with us here, check out our different events then come and have lots and lots of fun with us.
