Tag and a Tour of a Cause We Support
Tag 4 A Cause returned to Apex Entertainment in Albany last night as part of a full day of showing our support for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Prior to the event I had a chance to visit two locations that are part of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region. I was able to meet Debbie Ross, the resident house director, take a tour the Albany house and donate a home laser tag set to be enjoyed by the families that they help.
Debbie offered some wonderful insight about RMHC and what they do locally in the Capital Region, where they are celebrating their 40th anniversary of helping families!
And prior to my stop in Albany, I had a chance to also tour a very special place, the Ronald McDonald Family Retreat at Krantz Cottage where families going through medical challenges with their children can get some respite and time away at this beautiful cottage in the heart of Lake George, where I presented a second set of home laser laser tag to Family Support Specialist, Ashley Cahill who was kind enough to give me a tour of the cottage.
This cottage opened last July and has already been a respite retreat for 17 families, though Ashley says they are on track to help 40 families in the coming year.
After getting a first-hand look at the good work Ronald McDonald House Charities is doing right here in the Capital Region it was off to Tag 4 A Cause at Apex Entertainment in Albany.
The first participants are friends who shared with me that this event mattered to them because they had family members who had a personal connection with the Ronald McDonald House in Albany.
Everyone who donated took home this quarter’s commemorative laser tag 5K medal.
And they earned their medal while laser tagging in hopes of getting the highest score of the event.
I completed my laser tag 5K challenge at the Apex arena as well.
Congratulations go out to Vincent Vilardi for winning the golden phaser high score trophy with his top score of 17,101.
My thanks also to the entire staff at Apex Entertainment in Albany for all their support for Tag 4 A Cause as well as for all they do locally in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The Tag 4 A Cause Laser Tag 5K challenge will continue to support Ronald McDonald House charities through the end of March. Want to participate from any arena, anywhere? Find out more at https://www.tiviachickloveslasertag.com/rmhc.
