Thank you for supporting the Miracle League of the South Hills, our players, and especially our runners!

By donating, you have become one of the biggest cheerleaders for our players who need you! Thanks for brightening our day; here is something to brighten yours!

One of our favorite players this summer was a 7 year-old boy with spina bifida. He has only ever been able to walk with a walker, but usually opted to crawl or ask for someone to carry him. After registering to play his favorite sport (baseball) his parents explained that he would have to get around the bases. On the first day, he didn’t crawl and he wasn’t carried. Without his walker, he ran. Slowly but surely, he rounded the bases and came home.

“Whether it is a 14 minute mile or a 7 minute mile, it is still a mile.”

If you’re ever looking for a little motivation, feel free to join us during the spring season and see what our kids and adults can do!

Stuff About Me:

I have been running since my college days, although at that time it was mostly in an effort to burn the calories from all of the beer and pizza I consumed!  I started running distance and racing in 2009 and I really enjoy it.  My first marathon was the Pittsburgh Marathon in 2012.  I thought the run was incredible.  The people of Pittsburgh came out in shocking numbers to cheer us on in every neighborhood!  Once I realized I could make it for 26.2 miles, I really wanted to run for a charity the next time around.  Since both of my boys play baseball and it is a big part of our spring and summer, I chose to support the Miracle League and Casey's Clubhouse.  To give children with special needs the chance to play this game on a field that is equipped to meet their needs is absolutely amazing.   The Miracle League is truly a fantastic cause to support.  Please consider donating.  Every amount helps!  Thank you!  :)
