The Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an all-volunteer organization supported by corporate sponsors. The Torch Relay is joined together through a unified series of walks, runs and cycling events that are connected by a single torch that travels to more than 25 cities in support of children’s hospitals nationwide.
100% of the participant fundraising goes to the participant’s local Children's Miracle Network hospital.
The first Torch Relay was a continuous mile to mile relay from Miami, FL to Orlando, FL in 2002. Since that first mile, The Torch Relay has raised more than $17 million dollars for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and traveled more than 100,000 miles across the US, with over 70,000 participants.
In 2020, The Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals hosted the first Coast to Coast Challenge. In 2022, we look forward to the return of in-person events while continuing the success of the Coast to Coast Challenge for a completely new and exciting Torch Relay experience.
