The Miracle of Kathy Miller is a 1981 television movie which is based on the real-life story of a Scottsdale, Arizona teenager who was critically injured in a 1977 car accident.

Kathy, a high school track and field athlete, overcame the severe mental and physical injury to compete in and finish a long-distance race (shown at the climax of the film). The distributor was Universal TV.
