After a midair collision of two airplanes above Superior seven years ago, the eleven survivors of the experience continue to give back to the community.

Miracle Eleven is the name of the group for their non-profit that uses its funds to donate to various charities and non-profits in the community and across the country. 

They get most of their funds from their licensed videos of recordings of the collision in November of 2013 they caught on cameras worn during the jump. This year they're donating $5,000 locally.

"Our theme this year was hunger because of COVID and all of the hardships that brought on to families, we felt there was a need to help people with their basic need which is food," said Miracle Eleven President Mike Robinson. "That's why we are giving to non-profits that support the food needs in our area."

At Skydive Superior on Tuesday, Miracle Eleven gave $3,000 to the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank. They also gave $1,000 to both CHUM and Superior's Salvation Army.
