Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals raise funds and awareness for 170 children's hospitals across North America. More than 10 million kids enter a Children's Miracle Network Hospital every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time. Our various fundraising partners and programs, like the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, support our mission to save and improve the lives of as many local children as possible.

DPHM Weekend Celebrated Charity

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is the celebrated charity of the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ sponsorship of the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend is a unique program for our organization. Funds raised by Miracle Makers support CMN Hospitals’ operations. For every dollar that supports our operating budget, we are able to turn it into $10 in donations to our local member hospitals that use the funds where they're needed the most. For every dollar donated to a Miracle Maker:

12 cents support medical research
25 cents goes to life-saving equipment
13 cents helps provide charity care
50 cents provides educated and specialized programs for kids
