Seven Miracle motorcycle riders from Siouxland have set out from Sioux City on a long journey for an amazing cause. The Unity Point Health/St. Luke’s “Miracle Riders” left Monday morning from Thompson Electric, who sponsored the send-off, for a 5,000 mile trip on the historic Route 66 to raise money for UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Children’s Miracle Network and all of Siouxland. This is the second annual “Ride for Miracles” for Sioux City.
The riders, riding through whatever the weather is, are scheduled to return home Friday, September 29th with an open reception at the Firehouse Bar.
Check out their website, www.miracleriders.com to watch the live feed, see photos, read blogs from the daily journey and follow their progress as they make their way on Route 66. Their goal is to raise $50,000 during their trip.
Recently Thompson Electric employees participated in the Brookings Health System Foundation‘s eighth annual Aiming to Inspire Health sporting clays fundraiser.
The goal of the fundraiser was to earn money for new Automated External Defibrillators (AED) units for the Brookings Police Department Vehicles.
The Thompson team had 4 members, Mike Anderson, Derek Bundesen, Keith Gorter, and Dillon Coughlin.
At the end of the day, the Thompson team not only supported a great cause, they also had a lot of fun.

Thompson Electric in Sioux City is expanding their industrial and commercial services to the Northwest Iowa area with a full-time service electrician. Tyler Walsh is a recent graduate of the Thompson Electric fLEX Program and is a welcome addition to Thompson Electric’s service department.
One of the many services Thompson Electric provides is low voltage data cabling. The need to keep your racking and switches clean, easy to access and understand is vital for any business. If you experience issues with your data your technician will need to get to the issue quickly. Having a hard to navigate data closet can really delay your operation.
These are a few of the transformations Thompson Electric has performed.
