57 Minute Miracle: Miracle in a South Bend classroom

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- ABC57's 57 Minute Miracle series is back for the 2022 holiday season! Meteorologist Maci Tetrick started the series at the Riverwalk in Mishawaka.

How does this series work? Maci asks someone (at random) if they know of anyone else who could use a holiday miracle. If the first person (the miracle maker) can get us to the second person in 57 minutes or less, they will receive the miracle: $570. The catch? The miracle maker can't tell the other person what is happening; it has to stay a surprise.

As Maci was walking the Riverwalk, she ran into Megan and Cynthia. They knew they wanted to make a miracle happen for their family member, Gisella, but they weren't sure how they would be able to meet with her. Gisella, a local schoolteacher, was in the middle of teaching!

Could Maci, Megan, and Cynthia work out a plan to get to Gisella in 57 minutes or less?

You can watch the series play out over the course of these three videos.

There will be new episodes each Thursday now until Christmas, as Maci continues to search for those in need of a miracle all across Michiana. You can watch those only on ABC57 News on December 1, 8, 15, and 22, starting at 5 p.m.
