BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is taking part in Children’s Miracle Network’s new online-only event, the Miracle Marathon, and is the only Canadian hospital participating in the initiative.

Miracle Marathon is a 27.2-day wellness challenge where participants move the equivalent of one mile per day through any activity they choose. The goal is to get active while helping sick and injured kids in our community get well. Participants will receive daily challenges, inspirational stories or motivational messages throughout the event, encouraging them to fundraise for one of 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, like BC Children’s Hospital.

The first 26 days are completed at a time and place convenient for each participant. On day 27, regardless of location, all participants are encouraged to start the last 1.2 miles at the same time and finish the 27.2-mile Miracle Marathon together. It’s a marathon, plus an extra mile for the kids!
