When twins Abigail and Hunter were born, the VanNortwick family encountered the devastating news that Abigail could go home, but Hunter would need to be taken to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Living in Shiawassee County, the VanNortwick family faced the challenge of living too far from the hospital to commute back and forth with a newborn.
Jennifer Van Nortwick and her family helped host Saturday’s “Run for the House.” The family is helping the Ronald McDonald house raise money because they did so much for them.
Each year one family who previously stayed at the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan is selected to kick off the annual Run for the House. This year, the VanNortwick family of Shiawassee County kicked off the 2016 Run for the House on Saturday, March 19th.
