About Miracle Walk
Miracle Walk was created by a family in gratitude for the care their daughter received
during a three month stay in the Saint Barnabas Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
A team of dedicated parents have joined together to organize and participate in this annual
walk-a-thon to raise financial support for the NICU. In the past 16 years, Miracle Walk has
raised over $5 million to purchase advanced medical technology for the NICU.
Due to the success of Miracle Walk, the NICU at Saint Barnabas has acquired
state-of-the-art equipment such as Giraffe Omnibeds, NeoPuff infant resuscitators,
neoBLUE LED phototherapy lights and cutting-edge Isolette infant transporters to help
treat the more than 1,100 infants cared for yearly. Parents of babies treated at Saint Barnabas
for prematurity, low birth weight, serious illness, and congenital disorders know the invaluable
care they receive has provided for optimal outcomes.
