When patients partner with our runners, they form an inspirational team. Our runners have the privilege of running in honor of your son or daughter. For patients, it's a unique opportunity to be part of the marathon excitement in a highly personal way.

  • Boston Children's will pair you with a Miles for Miracles Team Boston runner.
  • Meet your runner at a December kickoff reception, then stay in touch as often as you’d like.
  • Fundraising is optional, but if you decide to fundraise we have plenty of tips.
  • Days before the race, the whole team gathers for a pre-race celebration.
  • On race day, join other Miles for Miracles supporters at special cheering sections along the course.
