"IOU Sports is honored to accept this check from Miracle on Canal Street. We will be able to carry on our mission of Empowering and Educating Girls through Sports. This means so much to us and to the community...Sports improves learning and concentration, which can give active girls an advantage in the classroom but what's also important, girls become physically active and boost their self esteem." Bernell Hooker
IOU Sports was named as one of 30 recipients of support through Potawatomi Bingo Casino's 19th Annual Miracle on Canal Street program.
Thirty children’s charities from southeastern Wisconsin celebrated after Potawatomi Bingo Casino announced they raised $981,273 during the 2012 Miracle on Canal Street program. Each charity will receive $32,709.
