Our Impact

When you donate to Nick’s Marathon, you make a difference in children’s lives.

Over the years, we have bought countless video games for Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Metro (formerly known as the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island). The house’s playroom is currently stocked with a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and many Nintendo Switches, along with a wide assortment of video games, controllers, and accessories, all donated by Nick’s Marathon.

The video games we donate make a huge difference for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. Often, young patients undergoing long treatments miss the comforts of home, and playing the newest video games can help raise their spirits. Just watch this video to see what we mean:

We have also donated Nintendo Switches and video games to the Grand Strand Medical Center in Myrtle Beach.

And it’s not all video games! We also donated four brand new cameras to the digital photography club at the A. Philip Randolph Career and Technical High School in Philadelphia.
