?Safe!? The victorious call from an umpire on the baseball field. A call of celebration for any baseball player but at the Miracle League of the Triangle it means so much more. For the athletes with special needs, their families and our volunteers being called Safe at Home means?
Acceptance for who you are and what you can do without worrying about what you can?t do.
Accessibility whether you have a wheelchair, walker, braces or are mobile on your own.
Fulfilling dreams of parents, watching a child they were told could never be a part of a team.
Comradery and friendship between teammates, coaches and their fans.
Sense of purpose for volunteers who didn?t realize the gifts they have working with others.
Self-assurance that as a family living with special needs you are not alone.
The Miracle League of the Triangle is in its 16th year calling individuals with special needs Safe at Home. It all started with 80 children on eight teams and now serves over 500 individuals in the Triangle. 40 teams play on two customized, accessible fields located in Cary and North Raleigh. As the organization continues to grow, the goal is to eventually serve over 1,000 local players. These plans include opening a future ball field to be built in Durham near the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
During this time of pandemic, many of us wait, safe at home, looking forward to resuming our active lives in the community. The special athletes of the Miracle League are no different. They too want to return to the diamond for a great game of baseball. It will take community support, your support, to make it possible for the Miracle League of the Triangle to continue creating positive life experiences for individuals with special needs.
