Miracle Marathon

MiracleMarathon14_posterMiracle Marathon is a 27.2-day virtual fundraising campaign in which participants move the equivalent of one mile per day – through any activity they choose – from September 16 to October 12, 2014.  The goal is to promote physical activity while helping sick and injured kids in our community get well.  Participants will receive daily challenges, inspirational stories and motivational messages throughout the event, encouraging them to complete their daily mile and raise donations for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

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 all of BC’s kids.

Whether you choose to participate on your own or participate as part of a team, Miracle Marathon is a marathon anyone can complete. It makes an otherwise overwhelming race accessible for individuals of any fitness level and promotes health and wellness for both our children and our communities.
