Ronald McDonald House will receive a powerful transformation of their facility on the weekend of August 22 - 24. Members of the NC149 Leadership Team from the Legacy Center in Chapel Hill, NC are creating an extreme makeover of the Ronald McDonald House because they have a vision of uniting the world with love and empowerment. This extreme makeover project is the culmination of Legacy Center’s three-month leadership development program. NC149 is committed to creating a safe and beautiful space for families to come together and feel loved and supported as they are going through challenging times. They want families to experience abundant love and connection to each other and the world around them. Their intention is to create a space of peace, reflection and calm in the storm of life’s challenges.

The Legacy Center Leadership Program is a three-month program designed to develop skills in leadership, enrollment and contribution. What makes this project unique is that the Legacy Center Leadership team of four individuals must completely design the project from start to finish, cannot use any of their own money, must involve the community to do 75% of the work and also have it complete in one weekend! Every leadership team of the Legacy Center creates a project that focuses on a domain such as family, children, health, community, animals, agriculture or the world. The NC149 team chose a project in the domain of children. They selected The Ronald McDonald House because it supports families with children who face immense emotional, physical and financial challenges. Knowing that the Ronald McDonald House of Durham will be there to support them in a safe and caring environment helps to alleviate some these challenges. Built with love, the Ronald McDonald House of Durham offers a comforting home away from home and a community of support for seriously ill children and their families.

The NC149 Leadership Team will create a beautiful garden with over 100 plants and a walkway to allow families to feel at peace and full of life. They will plant butterfly-attracting plants, create a walkway, install a water feature with soothing sounds of water and provide seating to encourage a space of relaxation and peace. They will repair and beautify a gazebo and two sheds. In addition, the NC149 Leadership team will install “DaVinci” artwork frames in ten bedrooms to encourage children to creatively and artistically express their Journey through art.

The NC 149 Leadership Team asks for your help to make this life-changing project possible the weekend starting at 12:00 pm Friday, August 22, 2014 and concluding with the ribbon cutting at 5:00 pm on Sunday, August 24, 2014. The team will begin the work at 12 pm on Friday and then 8 am on both Saturday and Sunday at 506 Alexander Ave, Durham, NC 27705. Everyone is invited to come out and be a part of creating something magical for these children and their families.
