28th Annual Miracle Mile of Quarters

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - All that spare change certainly adds up to amazing art!

Kids from all over the county lined up outside Rady Children's Hospital Saturday for the 28th Annual Kiwanis Miracle Mile of Quarters.

The quarters used in the art represent the money raised by Kiwanis over the past year and then the kids were given the change and got creative.

"The kids plan for all year long for what they're going to make out of quarters and some are getting 3D, all kinds of different creative things. It's really fun to watch," said Carol Damon-Scherer, Senior VP Rady Children's Hospital Foundation.

Organizers estimate that tens of thousands of dollars in quarters were used Saturday.

The money will go to the Rady Children's Hospital's trauma center.
