With the upcomig Holiday’s if you are thinking about what to give family and friends, please think about giving a gift that will bring a smile of childrens faces.  Please take a minute to watch the video below.  Wilmington NC is getting  a Miracle Field for the new Miracle League.  Accessible Coastal Carolina Events Sports and Services (ACCESS) was started to bring the field to the area. “The overall mission of ACCESS is to not only provide an opportunity for those who have not yet had the chance to experience the power of play and the joy of sports but to also show the importance of inclusion within a community. Creating a place where people of all ages, races, and abilities can actively participate together, will naturally allow relationships to develop as people share interest. More importantly it is opening the door to a better world for everyone.” The Miracle League was started in the late 1990′s in Rockdale Youth Baseball program in Atlanta.  They recognized the need to include all children in a sport regardless of their abilities.  Hence the Miracle Field was started.  People of all abilities and ages could play baseball.  Eventually the fields were made to  have a rubber, non-latex surface that is helpful and safe for persons with any mobility difficulties.  The Wilmington area is excited to participate in such a wonderful project.  The fields will be built at Olson Fields off Murrayville Road. There will be playgrounds for all abilities and restrooms.  The project has raised 87.5% of it’s goal of 1.2 million dollars.  If you would like to donate in someones name as a gift for Christmas, what a great way to honor them.  The Miracle Field is truly a “miracle”  Please watch this video of the Wilmington Miracle Field.  For more information or to donate online, please visit www.miracleleaguewilm.org/
