Wolfson's Children's Challenge Ultra Marathon

Since 1955, Wolfson Children's Hospital has been a place of hope, second chances, and medical wonders for countless children and their families. Motivated by the idea that every child deserves another birthday, the Wolfson Children's Challenge is a celebration of their lives. This symbolic event features 55 children who share their inspiring stories

The inspiration for the Wolfson Children's Challenge came from Paul Wilson, whose newborn son, Luke, faced difficult surgery within hours of birth. Paul hoped to raise $5,000 by running 55 miles, the age of the hospital during his son's stay. In four years, the event has raised more than $2 million toward the purchase of a 3 Tesla MRI. This groundbreaking technology can lead to earlier diagnoses and the elimination of certain surgeries and procedures.

This year, StoryTree is looking for relay runners to complete the 55 mile course.  With enough interest we form as many teams as possible.  Please let us know you will participating by sending a note through our Contact Us page.
