Ronald McDonald House
The idea behind Ronald McDonald House is simple: provide a "home-away-from-home" for families of seriously ill children who are receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. Some children have to travel great distances to get the medical attention they need. The Ronald McDonald House provides a comfortable, supportive alternative for these children and their families.
Each year Trish participates in McHappy Day as part of an exciting effort to raise funds in support of Canadian children in need. One dollar from the sale of every Egg McMuffin sandwich, Happy Meal and Big Mac sandwich is donated. On McHappy Day, don't be surprised if you pull up to the drive-thru window and you receive your order from seven-time Champion Trish Stratus.
Trish also participates annually in the Ronald McDonald House Charity Golf Classic. She donates her time to the tournament, as well as involving her studio by leading the group in a session of Stratusphere Golf, a yoga session designed for golfers. Stratusphere Yoga Studio proudly donates passes and packages which are auctioned in an effort to further help raise funds.
While in New York a few years back, the children and their families of the Ronald McDonald House in New York City had their day brightened when they got to spend the day taking pictures and playing video games with WWE Champions Trish Status and Dave Batista.
