Providence Marathon & Half Marathon Charity

Help make a local child’s wish come true when you run for a cause with the Providence Marathon benefiting Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. A wish can be a spark that helps a child believe anything is possible. In the face of life-threatening medical conditions, wishes enable children to experience profound joy, renewed strength and resiliency, and lasting hope to keep striving and dreaming for the future.

Together with generous supporters and 500+ volunteers and nearly 10,000 wishes in Massachusetts and Rhode Island since its founding and its vision is to grant the wish of every medically eligible child. Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2023!
