A traditional marathon is 26.2 miles, but Miracle Marathon participants go the extra mile for local kids. Miracle Marathon will take place Sept. 16 – Oct. 12 with participants moving one mile each day. On the final day, Oct. 12, all participants will begin the final 1.2 miles together, at 2:27 p.m. EST. Regardless of location, participants will complete the final stretch at the same time. It's a marathon, plus an extra mile for the kids.

July 2014

We're on a mission to save kids, and we need your help! Our local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals treat thousands of kids each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These children are facing a variety of serious ailments, such as cancer, cystic fibrosis and injuries from accidents.

We are going to complete a Miracle Marathon throughout part of September and October, and we need your support. Since a traditional marathon is 26.2 miles, Miracle Marathon adds a special touch by adding one additional mile "for the kids." Over the course of 27 days, we are going to complete one mile per day by walking, running, dancing, skipping or just moving our way to that goal. It's a month-long marathon -- plus an extra mile -- for the kids!

We sincerely hope that you can find it in your heart to support our efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Your donation is tax-deductible, and 100 percent of proceeds go to help sick or injured kids. Donating on the Miracle Marathon website is safe and easy, and we can't do this without your help!

To make an online donation please click here!

Thank you for supporting us on this journey "for the kids!"
