Siouxland made miracles happen for local children during the UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Children’s Miracle Network 2021 Mediathon event on November 9th and 10th. The two-day event was broadcast live on KG95 and KTIV, as the community pledged their support to our local Children’s Miracle Network. A total of $125,095 was raised by our community, supporters, and sponsors for the kids of Siouxland!

“We’re blown away by the support from this community,” says Stacey Selk, Director of the UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Children’s Miracle Network. “The funds raised this week will impact so many families right here in Siouxland and we couldn’t be more grateful.”

The generosity of our Siouxland community helps change the lives of over 24,000 annual pediatric visits to UnityPoint Health - Sioux City each year. Stories of Siouxland children and families who have been impacted by gifts to Children’s Miracle Network were shared throughout the event. Mediathon pledges will be used to enhance children’s health care at St. Luke’s, helping to purchase equipment and supplies, as well as to support family and community education programs.

This event has raised more than $1.4 million in the first 20 years through sponsorships, personal pledges, donated items, and gift basket raffles. This year’s basket raffle included 27 creative baskets, with most valued around $300.
