Shreveport-Bossier City rose up and raised a ton of money for our local kids.

The Miracle Challenge ended on September 27. It was 27 days of getting fit and raising money for local kids right here in Shreveport-Bossier. The money goes to Children's Miracle Network to fund the 17 CMN programs at CHRISTUS Health Shreveport and Bossier. It was sponsored by SWEPCO and Ironworks Nutrition.

Our Challenge takers raised $12,000.

All of that money will stay right here in our backyard. And that number continues to grow at more pledges and donations are processed. Funds will be collected through October 31, so you can still donate if you choose to. Maybe we can get to $15,000 or even $20,000.

Out of all the markets across the country, Shreveport-Bossier had the fifth largest number of participants. Early on, we were recognized as being the most active market on social media, so 12 grand doesn't surprise me.

Overall, 3,027 people participated across the country, 19,054 Challenges were completed and over $574,687 has been raised. What an incredible win for Children's Miracle Network!
