Current and former patients are invited to join the program to be matched with a runner training and fundraising for Boston Children’s Hospital. Patient Partners are encouraged to share their Boston Children’s journey with their runner to provide them with inspiration and motivation to finish the 26.2 miles! Patient partners are part of the race day excitement, and honorary members of the Miles for Miracles team.
- Team practice volunteers – Inspire the team at a Saturday training run by sharing your story and/or handing out water.
- Race day cheering section – Join us on race day to cheer on the Boston Children’s runners as they head towards the finish line.
- Fundraising prizes – It’s optional to fundraise, but you’ll receive some swag if you do!
We can’t guarantee that all alumni runners will be accepted as runners need to re-apply each year. We’ll do our best to accommodate requests, but with the chance we’re unable to keep alumni matches paired, we hope you’ll still participate!.
