Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- The United Way of Cass-Clay is celebrating an "everyday miracle" with a fundraising leap this year.

The group surpassed its campaign goal of five-point-one million dollars, coming in with an extra 20-thousand. That makes this the largest campaign in the organization's history.

Olympic gold medalist Dave Christian helped celebrate the achievement, after kicking off the campaign in September.

Christian says, "The campaign result is an important step to realizing the overall gold medal goal of changing lives in our community and creating miracles for all of us that live here."

The dollars raised will benefit thousands of people in areas like children's needs, emergency services, and counseling.
