The Hoffman family was one of the first families to call Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley home, back in 2011, when their son Dylan was hospitalized at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital shortly after he was born.

For the next three years, Caroline & Kevin Hoffman found comfort in the House a total of 77 nights, during Dylan's various hospital stays, until his passing on September 12, 2014.

Since then, every September the Hoffman family celebrates Dylan's life by raising funds and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House, so families like theirs have the support and resources they need to cope during their child's illness.

This September join the Dashing for Dylan Challenge and help us reach our goal of moving 3,650 miles and raising $100,000 in honor of Dylan's 10th birthday this year.

This goal will allow us to provide 532 nights of comfort to families during the most difficult time in their lives.

    I make this donation in honor and in memory of my Great Nephew, Dylan Hoffman, now a special Angel in Heaven! What a great and purposeful fundraiser and many kudos to Dylan’s family especially his Mom, Dad and beautiful little sisters.

    Although we pledged 200 miles at .50 we didn't quite make it- too much rain we still want to contribute the $100 to Team D Man along with the $100 we contributed in August to Team D Man. In loving memory of our nephew Kevin Hoffman's dear son Dylan J Hoffman. Kathleen and Ronnie Joppru

    We walked 147 of our 200 Mike's but we're donating our pledge amount of $100. I think the rain stopped us this year. We re happy to walk in the Dashing for Dylan campaign to support the Ronald Mcdonald House in memory of our (great) nephew Dylan J Hoffman.

We are so proud to support the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley on their 10 year anniversary and Dylan's 10th Birthday! We were there shortly after it opened and have been proud supporters ever since! Our family including our in-laws benefitted from the house which made a huge difference in how our family thrived during a devastating diagnosis. Please help us this year continue to support the house and celebrate 10 years of Dylan. Though he isn't here, he and his memory have brought so much to our family, community, and beyond! Thank you so much for your support over the past 10 years and your continued support!
