Miracle Events, 2003-04

Sept. 17, 2003

Each academic year, the University of Iowa Department of Intercollegiate Athletics teams with University of Iowa Health Care to stage a series of events called “The Miracle Games.” These events are designed to accomplish two objectives:

In some instances – like in the case of the annual Miracle Game staged by the University’s two basketball programs – “Miracle” events generate revenue for the Children’s Miracle Network.

Miracle events generate awareness for the Children’s Hospital of Iowa.

In all cases, Miracle events generate awareness for the Children’s Hospital of Iowa.

And, in all cases, Miracle events are meant to generate awareness and spectator participation in events involving intercollegiate athletics teams at the UI.

UI Health Care is a participant in the UI Athletic Department’s Partners in Excellence corporate sponsorship program. As a Partner, UI Health Care is committed to building awareness of and participation in the intercollegiate athletics program at the University of Iowa.
