This program is held each Saturday (starts April 11, 2015 for this season) and runs for approximately 8 weeks. Each game lasts about an hour. Miracle League is a program to allow special needs kids to play baseball. Each volunteer (a.k.a. Buddy) is assigned a kid and each game their Buddy helps them bat, run the bases, field, and gives them support. This is really fun and will keep you smiling the rest of the day.

Wear sunscreen and get ready to pick up hundreds of cigarette butts! Volunteers stay to clean up trash on Delray Beach for 1-2 hours. It is a good cause and you can get a tan while doing a good deed for our community.
