BENEFITING: THE MIRACLE LEAGUE OF CENTRAL ILLINOIS INC
The Miracle League of Central Illinois provides physically and mentally challenged children a safe and spirited program in which they can play on a baseball field just like other kids. Miracle League baseball offers a unique and memorable opportunity these children would not otherwise have. The late Bill Wright, who owned Uncle Bill's Self Storage in Normal — founded Miracle League of Central Illinois in 2009 to allow children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities play baseball. His dream was for the league and its players to have their own field made of a synthetic surface to make it easier for all players — especially those who use wheelchairs, walkers and canes — to get around. Uncle Bill's Miracle Field opened July, 27 behind The Corn Crib, 1000 W. Raab Road in Normal. Now, we're in need of restrooms!
