Miracle Marathon to Support Beaumont Children's Hospital


I’m thrilled to share that I’m serving as a blogger for this fall’s Miracle Marathon, specifically in support of Beaumont Children’s Hospital in Royal Oak, MI! Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raise funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. When a donation is given it stays in the community, helping local kids. So great, right?

Beaumont Peds Garden
The Miracle Marathon is a 27-day virtual fundraising campaign in which participants run/walk (or achieve forward motion of any kind!) one mile per day at their leisure. The first 26 days are completed at your own pace—wherever and whenever you want. On Day 27, the final 1.2 miles will be started as a group at 2:27 pm EST. Get it? It’s a marathon, plus a mile, for the kids! And it’s perfect for those of us who like the idea of completing a marathon but would rather not complete all the miles at once!

Please join me and register to support Beaumont Children’s Hospital or another Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, and tell your friends too! And if you register as a Miracle Maker (you’ll receive fun swag!), you can use my special code BEAUMONT10OFF to get a 10% discount off registration.  http://www.miraclemarathon.org/ Feel free to join my team: Metro Detroit Mommy!

Don't want to participate, but still want to help?  Please consider donating to help me reach my goal:

  2. When I first read the title I was like "phew, 27 miles!" Even when I was running I couldn't do that many. I love the sound of this charity event. Might be just the motivation I need to get back on the c25k track!
