Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta
Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta is more than just a place to stay; it’s a place of comfort and support, with feelings of home. Gord Bamford chose the charity for his Foundation to support in 2009. Just a few short weeks later, Gord’s new baby daughter required a two-week surgical stay in a Calgary Hospital. The Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta officially opened its doors on February 27, 2012 and became the first new House to open in Canada in over 19 years. More than 33,000 children stay at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre each year, and one-third of those children come from out of town with their families.
