The Miracle League of the Triangle’s “Safe at Home” virtual gala raised $170,000 on Tuesday, Oct. 13.

As many of us wait, safe at home, looking forward to resuming our active lives in the community, the special athletes of the Miracle League are no different. They too want to return to the diamond for a great game of baseball.

The gala was a celebration of the Miracle League of the Triangle’s mission to create positive life experiences for individuals with special needs.

The Miracle League of the Triangle is in its 16th year calling individuals with special needs Safe at Home. It all started with 80 children on eight teams and now serves over 500 individuals in the Triangle. 40 teams play on two customized, accessible fields located in Cary and North Raleigh. As the organization continues to grow, the goal is to eventually serve over 1,000 local players. These plans include opening a future ball field to be built in Durham near the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
