Beneficiary

The Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend benefits The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, the organization has raised more than $4.7 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children's hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it's needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of the mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. Right now there's a Children's Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children's Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that's one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open. See excerpts of our incredible journey below and join us as we continue our mission to increase funds and awareness for local children's hospitals.
