The Torch Relay for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is a unique multi-day event where participants can walk or run a segment of The Torch Relay at events throughout the country to raise money for their local CMN Hospital.
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 over $15.1 million dollars for children's hospitals nationwide. The Torch Relay for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. The Torch Relay is an all-volunteer organization that is supported by generous corporate sponsors, and participant funds benefit the local CMN Hospital in the city where they were raised.
