What is HOPE Rising?

HOPE Rising is a celebration of our guest families at the Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake. Every day, we are inspired by the courage of the seriously ill children and families served by RMH. We take pride in sharing how to brave uncertainty and showing how YOU can be a ray of hope.

Watch the video above for a recap of the October 2020 HOPE Rising half-hour event and fill your day with sunshine. Hear some of our guests share what gave them hope during their darkest hours, and see how they found comfort and compassion.
