As a Ride of a Life Time participant, you're supporting two worthy causes - Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and the Life Time Foundation.
Each year, millions of kids require the kind of specialized care that only a children’s hospital can provide. There is a significant funding gap in children’s healthcare across the United States, which is why these hospitals must rely on donations and community support. CMN Hospitals is there helping to raise the critical funds necessary to ensure our member hospitals can provide holistic, best-in-class care for kids and their families.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals that support the health of 10 million kids each year across the U.S. and Canada. Donations go to local hospitals to fund critical life-saving treatments and healthcare services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, child life services that put kids’ and families’ minds at ease during difficult hospital stays and financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford these health services. When we improve the health of all children and allow them the opportunity to reach their full potential, we also improve our communities for years to come. Together, we can change kids’ health. Together, we can change the future. To learn about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and your local children’s hospital, visit cmnhospitals.org
The Life Time Foundation believes that when children are well-nourished and take part in safe, fun, enriching physical activity, their minds and bodies flourish. We support K-12 schools and mission driven organizations nationwide by focusing on sustainable, impactful change in two mainareas:
NUTRITION We collaborate with school food leaders to help them serve wholesome, nourishing, minimally-processed food in schools across the United States. Since 2010, Life Time Foundation has positively impacted over 1.7 million childrens across the country.
MOVEMENT We partner with schools and community organizations nationwide to get kids moving by supporting these organizations as they make long-term, sustainable progress toward building healthier futures for the kids they serve. Since the Movement grant program was launched last year, we have impacted 25,586 kids, while encouraging them to fall in love with physical activity.
Since Life Time covers all of our own operational costs, every cent of every dollar contributed by you directly supports programs and grant making. For more information, check out our recent Q&A with the Life Time Foundation on Happier, Healthier Kids.
