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


The Life Time Foundation is dedicated to inspiring Healthy People, a Healthy Planet, and a Healthy Way of Life. Through financial grants and direct action, we support three main areas:

HEALTHY PLANET: We support forestation and conservation initiatives to conserve, preserve, and protect the environment, so everyone can live happy, healthy lives. 

YOUTH NUTRITION: We collaborate with school food leaders to help them serve wholesome, nourishing, minimally-processed food in schools across the United States. To date, Life Time Foundation has given $7.5 million to connect 508 school districts, 10,930 school sites and 6.3 million students to healthier, more nourishing school meals.

YOUTH 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 Life Time covers all of our own operational costs, every cent of every dollar contributed by you directly supports programs and grantmaking.
