Miles for Miracles

Patient Partners

Current or former patients are invited to join Miles for Miracles 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 a vital part of the race day excitement, and are honorary members of the Miles for Miracles team.



  • Team celebrations — Take part in a season kick-off to meet your runner and a pre-race event to get inspired for Marathon Monday.
  • Team practice volunteers — Inspire the team at a Saturday training run by sharing your story and/or hosting a water stop.
  • Race day cheering sections — Join us on race day to cheer on the Boston Children’s runners and wear your complimentary Miles for Miracles T-shirts.
  • Fundraising prizes — It's optional to fundraise, but you'll receive some swag if you do!
