    Default STrib: Flecks help make Ronald McDonald House camp possible

    per Megan:

    On the wall leading to Camp Ronald McDonald headquarters are little construction-paper oars, some posted alongside pictures of kids touring the Vikings facility, playing at Topgolf or even slip 'n sliding.

    Some of the oars don't have accompanying pictures yet documenting the good times. But at least one new addition will appear after Monday.

    Gophers coach P.J. Fleck, his wife, Heather Fleck, and several football players joined the campers for a barbecue lunch at the Ronald McDonald House near campus. The Flecks actually personally sponsor the camp, helping to pay for things like transportation, meals and tickets for all these camper activities.

    P.J. Fleck gave a lot of credit to his wife for her work on this, saying the Ronald McDonald House has become her true passion since moving to Minnesota and is a place she spends a lot of her time.

    "You see the canisters at McDonald's, and you see a Ronald McDonald House, but until you're in one, you don't really understand what they do," Heather Fleck said. "And the second I walked in here ... and I kind of found out what they're about, how they help not just the kids but the families of sick kinds, and they provide food and housing. It's just an amazing organization."

    The Ronald McDonald House is a great facility for the families. Good to see outside support to help keep the families motivated during a difficult time.
