The Children’s 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.
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! So I can run to raise money, and not have to complete a marathon all in one day. It is a win win right?
I’m thrilled because this fall I get to be a lead blogger for this marathon specifically in support of Children’s Specialized Hospital that takes care of over 22,000 children a year all across the state of New Jersey. If you aren’t familiar with Children’s Specialized, they have in-patient, outpatient and long term care for all of the kids in our great state.
Children’s Specialized does great work for the families in New Jersey. I am more than honored to be running on their behalf. Our team goal is $2720 (get it?) to start and I would love to blow it out of the water because when a donation is given it stays in the community, helping our local kids. What could be better?
You can be part of our Team ReinventionJerseyGirl by visiting our page and making a donation for all the miles I’ll run to help the kids. Or you can set up your own team for kids in your area and then hit the pavement. If you register as a runner, you can use the code MiracleCristie for a ten percent discount on your registration. Running starts September 16th so plenty of time for stretching! Either way, you can track our progress on Reinvention Girl’s Blog as well as all of RG’s social media channels and Jersey Moms Blog too. We’ll share updates on our goal and incredible stories of the kids who are the reason for this running in the first place.
See you on the beach-one mile at a time!
