Miracle Families

Throughout the year Soonerthon works with Miracle Kids. Miracle kids are real-life superheroes who brave the toughest battles at The Children’s Hospital. They use their superpowers as an ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Any child who is currently being or has been treated for pediatric illnesses at any nationwide Children’s Hospital qualifies as a Miracle Kid. We are lucky enough to be able to get to know and build relationships with these families that participate in the Miracle Child program. These children will come with their families and will be present at Soonerthon events, campus events and many others!

Ways you can get to know these families:

CAC Soonerthon is excited to present our annual Adopt-a-Family program. The Adopt-a-Family program is an integral part of the Soonerthon experience, allowing student organizations to forge personal connections with the children and families that the Children’s Hospital Foundation supports. Each organization elects a Team Captain to be the representative of their organization. The Team Captain will communicate with the CAC Soonerthon executive committee as well as plan all events with the Miracle Family throughout their Soonerthon experience. Check out "Meet the Kids" to get to know all of our Miracle Children!

Adopt-A-Family Application

Miracle Families have gone through the OU Children's Hospital for some type of medical treatment. These families get to be honored and celebrated during Soonerthon and throughout the year. Through our Adopt-A-Family Program, each Miracle Family is paired up with an OU organization that will host events specifically for them. Miracle Families have the opportunity to attend various events from the Keep Glowing 5K to the Block Party. During the day of Soonerthon, Miracle Families will be cheered on by OU Students, and Miracle Children and their siblings have an opportunity to showcase their talents all while enjoying being just a kid! CAC Soonerthon is a day filled with laugh, fun, and pure joy! We invite you to join us as we dance the day away and reveal how much money we raised For The Kids!
