How do I register for the Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals online?

Go to the "register" button and choose your city or the "Torch Relay Anywhere" option. You will be guided through the registration process. Once your transaction is complete, you will receive a confirmation email receipt.

Do I need to join a team to register?

Not at all. While there is an option to start a team or join a team if you would like to get your friends, family and co-workers together, many participants join as individuals.

The website does not list the location for my event. When will this info be available?

Because the details for local events can sometimes change due to circumstances beyond our control, not all of the event locations can be posted in advance. However, the specific location for each city will be posted no later than 45-days prior to the event. You will also receive an email confirmation to confirm your specific meeting time and location at least two weeks in advance.

Is my information secure? ​

Yes. Every effort is made to protect your information. We use industry-standard SSL encryption techniques to make sure that your credit card information, passwords, and personal information travel securely over the Internet. We have also installed an encryption engine on our database server so that your data is securely stored.
