Join WR and volunteer with the Miracle League
WithersRavenel employees will lend a hand with a long-running Triangle organization that brings joy to special needs children and adults.
We’ll be volunteering with Miracle League of the Triangle during games on Tuesday, May 14. The local organization, which allows children and adults to experience joy and community through baseball, was launched by WR co-founder Tony Withers.
Withers and Cary developer Robin Rose founded the Miracle League of the Triangle and assembled a team of professionals, businesses and volunteers with the goal of building a baseball field for special needs children.
The group’s first field next to Adams Elementary School in Cary was completed in 2006. In 2014, the Fred Smith Company Field was constructed in Raleigh. In 2015, the Miracle League expanded its programming to include adults. The league currently has more than 30 teams playing in youth and adult divisions with more than 400 players.
Special characteristics of the fields include the use of Mondo Sportflex Super X, a state-of-the surface material. It is exceptionally level, slip resistant, and easy to maneuver on while still cushioning against injuries, all of which are critical for players rounding the bases in wheelchairs or on crutches. The low-maintenance and durable surface is also non-porous and anti-microbial.
Also, the Cary site contains a bay of 13 van-accessible handicapped parking spaces parallel to the field.
The Miracle League program provides a safe place for individuals with special needs to play a team sport, many for the first time in their lives.
