Miracle Monday

Miracle Monday is an opportunity for the Tallahassee Miracle Board to recognize and highlight a Miracle Child’s story. Miracle Monday will be a month long “virtual” event advertised through our social media channels, and it will take place on the first Monday of every month. Miracle Board members, and members of the community, will be encouraged to post messages to that specific Miracle Child on our Facebook wall.

In addition, any fundraising events that take place during a Miracle Child’s specific month will be dedicated to their story and the impact that Children’s Miracle Network and UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital has had on their lives. If an event is not scheduled during a Miracle Child’s month, then they will be highlighted at the next available event. Each Miracle Child will have their story displayed on a poster board and also have the opportunity to share their story at the event.

Check back in the coming weeks for our first Miracle Monday!
