Walk on baby!

Great way to start off a Saturday morning and the weather is supposed to be awesome! I'll be huffing out a 9 hour training ride but am going to try and ride over to cheer on the walkers for a moment!

The Miracle Mile Walk is a one-mile walk, from the State Capitol to the campus of ACH, to raise funds and awareness for Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Representatives from Children’s Miracle Network National Sponsors are encouraged to participate. Click here if you need directions to the Capitol.

This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2007. Registration will open at 7:00 a.m. and the Walk will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Registration is $25 per person (kids 12 and under are free).

Afterward, walkers are invited to stay for lunch and a brief program. On the Border and Papa John’s Pizza will be on hand, with drinks provided by Coca Cola and sweet treats by Coleman Dairy.

The Miracle Mile Walk began in 2005 and in its first year raised $70,000 for Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Since then the event has grown in size and impact and last year 700 walkers raised more than $110,000.

Arkansas Children’s Hospital is the state’s only pediatric hospital with more than 267,000 patient visits each year. In 2006, over $2.6 million was raised for ACH through CMN fundraising efforts.

We hope you will walk with us to make miracles happen for the children at ACH. To register, click the link below. If you need directions to the Capitol, click here.
