UGA Miracle is the university’s largest student-run organization benefiting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Throughout the year, Miracle gives students the opportunity to interact with Miracle families and their children while being a part of a diverse and dedicated community of students. UGA Miracle’s capstone event, Dance Marathon, is a 24-hour fundraiser that happens every February here at UGA! All funds raised by this organization go directly to rehab services (CIRU) and the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at CHOA.

HEROs works to provide quality-of-life care to children impacted by HIV/AIDS. Hailey Hultberg (MC 21) is a team leader for this organization. She describes, "My experience in HEROs has shown how much impact we make on our kids' lives. I served as a Team Leader this past year for a group of highly dedicated freshmen. HEROs serve children mostly in the metro Atlanta area and have been able to change their lives through fundraising efforts and planned kid events geared towards showing kids that no matter their situation, they’re valuable and worthy." We are so proud of Hailey and other Pi Phis in this organization.
