Greater New Orleans Miracle League
New Orleans, LA
This grant will help to support the Miracle Field, a custom-designed sports field that accommodates wheelchairs and other walking-assistance devices so that children with disabilities can hit, run, catch, and kick. The vision of the program is to provide any disabled child, regardless of their level of disability, the opportunity to play league sports and enjoy the emotional and physical benefits of being part of a team sport. The field will be used for baseball and soccer. Grant funds will support programmatic equipment and supplies, including uniforms and sports equipment. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338.)
