WATERSLIDE-ATHON ON JUNE 20 TO BENEFIT RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

Date posted: May 22nd, 2015

We’re happy to announce that on Saturday June 20th, Wilderness Resort will again be serving as a major sponsor for the Wisconsin Dells Waterslide-athon, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House® in Madison.

Ronald McDonald 001CROPPEDThis year marks the 10th anniversary for this great event! The concept for it started as a way for our family-friendly Dells community to help families in need, and boy, have we ever! To date, this event has raised a whopping $165,108! This year 44 businesses in Wisconsin Dells will be lending their support to the cause.

As part of this fun day, we will be welcoming Ronald McDonald at our resort from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Weather permitting, Ronald will be walking through the Lost World Waterpark and will be available for photos and to meet and greet anyone who is interested. We’ll also be collecting donations for the Ronald McDonald House in both of our main resort lobbies, so please be sure to help this deserving cause if you can!

The Ronald McDonald House of Madison was welcomed more than 22,000 families from 50 states and 17 countries since it opened its doors in in 1993. The facility, which is located at 2716 Marshall Court on Madison’s west side, provides a “home away from home” for families of children 18 years and under who are undergoing treatment for serious illness or injuries at Madison area health care facilities. Each family is allowed one room in the House and is charged only $10 for their accommodations.
