Get Fit, Help Local Kids with Children’s Miracle Network’s ‘Miracle Challenge’
Are you ready for a simple challenge that will help you and local kids in our community?
This September, join me in taking the Miracle Challenge. It's 27 days of wellness that will help you get fit and help our kids, like Corbin (pictured above). This is the first year, Shreveport-Bossier is taking part in this virtual fitness event that raises money for the Children's Miracle Network programs right here in our backyard.
As a participant, you will choose a fitness passion; running, walking, studio classes, boot camp or cycling/spinning. Then Children's Miracle Network will provide you with a 27-day training or exercise program. Each day, you will raise $10 for CHRISTUS Health Shreveport-Bossier, our Children's Miracle Network hospital, and its 17 signature programs.
This is the perfect combination of fitness and fundraising.
Your program will be guided by world-renowned fitness coaches and celebrity motivators, including four Olympians, as well as several television and internet stars.
So pick your favorite fitness track, personalize your fundraising page, get people to join your team and lets get fit! All while helping kids in our community. Every dollar raised in Shreveport-Bossier, stays right here in Shreveport-Bossier.

“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
