If you are in the New Hanover county area, then I encourage you to sign up or volunteer for the Miracle League 5k/1 mile fun run,walk, or roll.
If you don’t know about the Miracle League and how amazing they are, let me enlighten you. The Miracle League is a non-profit organization dedicated to setting up and ensuring safe and accessible organized sports teams for men and women with disabilities. This is no easy feat either. However, when all is said and done, the end result is amazing.
Volunteers come out every week to help set up, run, and play. It is a great opportunity for the men and women with disabilities to interact and get some physical exercise. Last season I volunteered there and it has impacted me for life, and even made me change my field of interest.
None of this would be possible without donations and fundraisers like the 5k. So please, support them.
