A serious illness or injury can feel like a marathon for a child and their family. To help with that struggle, more than 1,600 runners participated in the Sioux Falls Half-Marathon, Miracle 5K or Kids Miracle Mile in September.

This was the twelfth year of the event with all proceeds benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network at Sanford Children’s Hospital. Starting next year, in conjunction with the Sioux Falls Sports Authority, a full marathon will be added to annual event. Next year’s races will take place on September 12, 2010.
