Courtney Supports McHappy Day

Courtney O'Hehir is a 20 year old hairdresser who races a wingless sprintcar at Sydney Speedway in Granville. You can read an earlier story about Courtney here.

The sprintcar season is well underway. Courtney competes in a distinctive pink car with matching race suit and helmet.

Last weekend Courtney took her sprint car off track, to the carpark at her local McDonald's in McGraths Hill.

The occasion was the annual McHappy Day, a major fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Funds raised on McHappy Day go towards a range of programs including Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, the Ronald McDonald Learning Program and Ronald McDonald Family Retreats Program.

The 2014 fundraising goal of $3 million equates to over 23,000 nights accommodation in a Ronald McDonald House for families with seriously ill children.

Now in its 24th year, McHappy Day has raised over $28 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
