The Torch Relay for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is a unique multi-day event where participants can walk, run or cycle a segment of the Relay at events throughout the country to raise money for their local children's hospital. Every event segment is supported by a team of trained volunteers who travel with the event each year.
The Torch Relay began in 2002 as a continuous relay starting in Miami, Florida and ending in Orlando, Florida. In 2003, the event was expanded to include northern Florida and Georgia. The first coast-to-coast Relay was held in 2005 and has continued to grow every year since. From the simple beginnings of the event, The Torch Relay for CMN Hospitals has raised close to $10 million dollars for children's hospitals nationwide.
