Children's Miracle Network Torch Relay is coming to Columbus for the first time on Saturday, October 27, 2007 and The Columbus, A Renaissance Hotel is teaming up as a local champion for the Columbus event.
Marriott International is a proud sponsor for this nationwide event, and this year, The Columbus Hotel has chosen to partner with Children's Miracle Network for the local leg of the relay. Area residents will join a team of more than 3,000 nationwide participants today as part of the third-annual, coast-to-coast Torch Relay for Children's Miracle Network.
The goal of the nationwide relay is to raise more than $1.25 million for Children's Miracle Network hospitals throughout the country. Walking alongside family members, business associates and friends, participants will set out this afternoon to raise funds for one of 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals in North America that annually treat 17 million children with life-threatening illnesses.
The walk will culminate at the relay's traveling "Miracle Village" which gives participants and community members the opportunity to experience the outstanding daily work that takes place at one of the Children's Miracle Network hospitals nationwide.
With "Miles for Miracles" being this year's motto, the CMN Torch Relay is a 24-day event which spans over 6,600 miles. Starting in Chicago, Illinois and eventually ending up in Los Angeles, California, Columbus is the second stop in the relay. As in the past, all funds raised will remain local, benefiting Children's Hospitals in the communities where the funds were donated.
