Ride for Miracles


September 18, 2017 was the first day to start the 2nd Annual Ride for Miracles for the St. Luke's Children's Miracle Network in Sioux City, Iowa. This ride will cover nearly 5,000 miles in just 12 days ending on September 29th! The route is through the historic Route 66 and the riders will be stopping at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to meet children and share their story along the way. The journey of the Miracle Riders represents the journey sick and injured kids and babies find themselves part of each and every day. The riders will brave the elements and road conditions and will face situations that represent those of Miracle Kids. Universal Pediatrics was happy to have the opportunity to support this great cause in honor of all our clients and families who face daily challenges but keep persevering! For more information you can go to www.miracleriders.com or follow the riders live by going to YouTube.com and subscribe to St. Luke's Children's Miracle Network.
