Welcome to the Philalympics!
This isn’t your typical virtual event!
Teams of 5 to 15 compete in the Philalympics to be crowned the “phunnest,” most creative, and most compassionate teams in Philadelphia. Your team captain will lead you through scavenger hunts, riddles, and more, uploading your team’s work to the Philalympics website. Your team can compete together in person or remotely. Recruit your most creative friends, family members, or co-workers, and get ready to have some Philly fun!

All funds raised at the Philalympics directly benefit the programs of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region, which supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope. Families like the Ortiz Family, pictured here.
Originally from West Palm Beach, the Ortiz Family began staying at the Ronald McDonald House this spring, when 5 year-old Jonathan began treatment at CHOP for a brain tumor.
