THE NORTH METRO MIRACLE LEAGUE
ENTERING OUR THIRD DECADE OF SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY
20 years ago, we started with twenty-two kids playing ball on a borrowed dirt field. Today we have our very own multi-purpose Adapted Sports Complex and Learning Center, Northside Hospital Field. Their foundation got fundraising off to a roaring start with a $205,000.00 gift.
In 2002 we cut the ceremonial ribbon on what has become a nationally recognized, award winning prototype for Special Needs programming. Special Ed. Professionals and Certified Therapists have designed and facilitated a broad spectrum of programming that serves more than 500 area families.
Because of our program directors skill sets and experience we are able to find just the right program and level of support for every child and young adult that comes our way. Adults and seniors are definitely included in all sports and social activities. Our oldest athlete is eighty-seven years old and a holy terror when she walkers up to the plate.
Out ultimate goal is inclusion, changing the social architecture of our community. The Buddy Program (volunteers) provides thousands of hours of meaningful community service every year. Middle school, high school students and faith-based youth groups are the primary engineers and architects of change, sharing the gift of time and friendship.
An amazing 20 year adventure, so much accomplished and so much more to do.
