Volunteer for Miracle Marathon
Be a part of the miracle
The Miracle Marathon has raised more than $22 million for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Your remarkable contributions help our doctors, nurses and other providers give kids the best care.
We need your help!
The Miracle Marathon spans two days, taking over the lobby of our West Tower and generating a lot of excitement in the hospital. Families and children tell their stories of hope, courage and healing all day long, and the community support pours in over the phones. We rely on the generous volunteers who help take those calls — local celebrities, hospital staff and many people like you who want to help make this critical fundraiser a success for the children. Each year, about 200 people help take phone calls.
- To be one of them, contact Megan Van Deurzen at (414) 266-4050.

"I started volunteering as a way to give back to our community — and helping kids is a 'no brainer'. The more I became involved, the more I learned how truly fortunate we are to have this hospital in our own backyard. This past year, my daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, which makes supporting Miracle Marathon even more personal."

"I volunteer because Children’s Hospital saved my life, and by volunteering I now have the opportunity to help raise money to save the lives of others." — Sage Thomas
