Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an international non-profit organization dedicated to helping children by raising funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals throughout North America. Each year these hospitals treat more than 17 million children afflicted with diseases, injuries and birth defects of every kind. Children’s Miracle Network Hospital's founding pledge to put children first in all it does and keep 100 percent of donations in the community where the funds were raised.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983. To date, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals have raised more than $3 billion – most of which is donated one dollar at a time.
Mercy Children’s Hospital is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for Northwest Ohio. Mercy Children’s Hospital helps provide care for children with medical needs across 14 counties and treats all children regardless of affliction or the family's ability to pay.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals would not exist without the help of our local and national sponsors. Year-round, our partners conduct hundreds of special event fundraisers, sell Miracle Balloons for $1 and hold Dance Marathons to help provide pediatric care for the children at Mercy Children’s Hospital.

Dance Marathon is one of the fastest growing programs at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Entirely student run, Dance Marathon has become a tradition at many of our local colleges and universities where students stay on their feet anywhere from 8 to 32 hours in honor of children who have been through so much. This past school year, the four dance marathon programs that support Mercy Children’s Hospital raised over $394,000!

Color Blaze 5K is the most unique 5K race that you will ever do! Our main focus is fun, family and entertainment. The Color Blaze 5K run/walk does not get caught up in the times and strengths of the participants, but rather involves the whole family and friends in a relaxed non-competitive Colorful running event. Participants are required to wear as much white as possible because during the event, you will get Blazed with waves of color transforming you into a tie-dye work of art. The great thing about this 5K is that everyone can get involved from seniors down to the finger painters. To sign up for our race, click here for the Lima run and here to pre-register for our Bowling Green run.
Play games...Heal Kids! Originally designed as a 24-hour marathon of gaming, Extra Life has evolved to mean different things to different people (though most of our participants still attempt the marathon). From console games to tabletop RPG's, to even lawn sports, Extra Life gives people that love to play a chance to do what they love to save lives and make a difference. To participate, you need only sign up (free) and gather the support of your friends and family through tax-deductible donations to your local CMN Hospital. Then on Saturday, October 25, 2014 (or any day that works for you!) play any game you want on any platform that you want with anyone you want for as long as you want.
