As we celebrate our 30th year of Ronald McDonald House serving families with critically ill or injured children, the completion of the pedestrian sky bridge over Watertown Plank Road signifies a great achievement. We celebrated the milestone with a ribbon cutting today.
Now we can offer a solution to our families for a safe and efficient way to cross Watertown Plank Road to and from Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. The bridge also represents the great relationship that unites our Ronald McDonald House with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
And how exciting that in the same month we celebrate the completion of this bridge, we also celebrate the completion of our expansion. We are about to open a whole new part of our house. The addition will allow us to serve up to 1,800 families — that’s 800 more than we currently can help. With that many more families having to get to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, we are all extremely grateful for this pedestrian bridge.
There are so many to thank for giving this bridge to Ronald McDonald House and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin families, including:
Together, Ronald McDonald House and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin are so important to this community, and to our larger community extending beyond Wauwatosa, in helping families and their children heal.
