Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta names rehabilitation gym after UGA Miracle

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta named its Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit Gym the “UGA Miracle Gym” in a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 20.

UGA Miracle is a student-run nonprofit organization at UGA that has donated nearly $6 million to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta since 1995, including a $1.068 million gift this year. CHOA informed the student group at the beginning of this year’s fundraising campaign that it would name the gym for the organization if it succeeded in meeting its annual fundraising goal of $1 million.

The students surpassed their goal, announcing a final total of $1,068,358.16 at the conclusion of their annual signature event, Dance Marathon, on Feb. 21, and Children’s Healthcare made good on its promise to name the gym.
