Ten years after surviving a mid air skydiving plane crash, the group that became known as the Miracle Eleven continues to give back.

From that terrifying event, the group formed a nonprofit by licensing videos of that experience.

Over the last decade, the group has been able to give away nearly $50,000 which they’ve raised from licensing fees.

Wednesday, they presented both 23rd Veteran and The Superior Douglas County YMCA with check for $1,000 each.

Mike Robinson, the president of Miracle Eleven explained, “We donate all the money we receive so the $2,000 dollars is basically all the money we have for this year.”

“Two people on our board recommended these, and our board took a vote. We thought they were great programs, supporting our veterans and supporting our youth. I don’t think it gets much better than that.”

Miracle Eleven has donated to a variety of local non-profits around the the Twin Ports, including First Witness, The Northern Light Foundation, United Way, and more.
