The Miracle League of Greater Flint receives several grants

MUNDY TWP. — The Miracle League of Greater Flint (MLGF) is proud to announce several gifts for the proposed Miracle League field in the southeast corner of Genesee County. A total of $7,500 was granted, $2,500 each from the Burroughs Memorial Trust, the Stella and Frederick Loeb Charitable Trust, and Martha Merkley Youth Charitable Trust; all of which are administered by Huntington Bank.

“These donations will make a lasting difference for thousands of children in Genesee County and surrounding areas,” said Brian Caine, League Director for the Miracle League of Greater Flint. “This support for the new Miracle League Field is a step towards accessible recreational opportunities for people of all abilities in our community. With this funding, we are getting closer to breaking ground on the Miracle League Field, forming teams, and giving every kid an equal opportunity to play sports.”

The new Miracle League Field will be the first project for the Hill Road Park in Mundy Township located on Hill Road near U.S. 23. Work is scheduled to begin in 2018 on the creation of the new park, with the Miracle League Field as one of the top priorities for the new recreational area. A capital campaign to fund the new field and operations is underway. Anyone interested in donating to the project can visit the MLGF GoFundMe site at www.gofundme.com/miracleleagueofgreaterflint.com.

The Miracle League of Greater Flint (MLGF), a licensed affiliate of the national Miracle League, is a non-profit 501C3 organization dedicated to creating fully-accessible recreational facilities specifically for the purpose of providing equitable health-enhancing activities for the residents of Genesee County and surrounding areas.
