Miles for Miracles


Application submissions will be reviewed by the Miles for Miracles staff. When completing the application, give thoughtful attention to your fundraising plan as we’re looking for runners who will go above and beyond in their efforts. Applicants with personal connections to Boston Children's Hospital and high fundraising goals will receive top consideration. You may be asked to schedule a phone call to discuss your application and program requirements. Running a prior marathon is not required for team acceptance.

Please note: While we value Miles for Miracles alumni, those interested in running still need to apply and complete the application in full. You will receive a phone call to discuss your application. Alumni aren’t given priority, nor accepted automatically.
