He was never a couch potato, but during his first 42 years as corporate mascot, Ronald McDonald gobbled plenty of french fries as he tangled with the Hamburglar and enticed children with Happy Meals. Not any more. The clown known around the world as the champion of Big Macs and fried apple pies has been born again as a fitness fanatic. In a global advertising campaign starting today, Ronald McDonald dons a streamlined version of his familiar jumpsuit and urges kids to get off their couches and join him as he snowboards, bicycles and plays basketball with NBA star Yao Ming.

The players pay $1 per card and they play for two hours, from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. each Monday. Current chief, Susie Pruitt, collects the money each week and when the tally reaches $300, Susie sends a check down to the Baltimore Ronald McDonald House.

Call it a clownnapping, or maybe a peeping Ron.A fully inflated, three-story-high balloon depiction of fast-food pitchman Ronald McDonald -- stolen from a McDonald's restaurant -- was found early yesterday in the back yard of a Parkville townhouse.The balloon had been squeezed into the small fenced yard of Kimberly Huskins' home in the 3500 block of Moultree Place -- the clown's back was to the road, and his face appeared to be peeping into a second-floor bedroom window. Pranksters had plugged in a generator to keep it inflated.

Baltimore's Ronald McDonald House put out a call for help and ended up with a brigade of mattress movers. "We need bodies," wrote Sandy Pagnotti, executive director of the West Lexington Street facility that provides housing to families with critically ill children undergoing treatment in five area hospitals. Her email said nothing about heavy lifting, multiple flights of steps or truckloads of mattresses. But her simple plea worked. "I had 70 men on the doorstep at 8 a.m.," she said.

The 2012 Fallston Lacrosse Lightning B-Team played the season for more than wins, championships or personal achievement. The team's coaches, Jeff Blum, Bob Deim and Hank Keeney, implemented "Cash for Stats," and with support from the parents, a small monetary value was assigned to each ground ball, assist and goal during the course of the season. The idea was to raise money through "Cash for Stats" and donate to a worthy charity. The coaches decided on the Ronald McDonald House and from the first ground ball to the last, they were playing for more than just themselves.

Only a charity event could boast such a bizarre assemblage: British and Northeast Baltimore royalty sitting for a proper tea party with a famous corporate clown in the west side of downtown. Yet there they were yesterday, two of the world's most famous redheads -- Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and Ronald McDonald -- having a spot of tea with Maryland first lady Katie Curran O'Malley. The occasion: to announce a McDonald's charity program that will place a new item -- a $1 donation -- on the Maryland menus of the chain's 500 restaurants in the Baltimore and Washington region.
