The mission to bring a Miracle League field to Genesee County took a big step toward becoming a reality tonight.
At the monthly Mundy Township Board meeting, the Board of Trustees approved Resolution No. R-17-02 which is a Michigan Department of Natural Resources Grant Application for the proposed Hill Road Park where the future Miracle League of Greater Flint will be located. The move means that the Township can now pursue grants and other funding source opportunities to support the creation of the new recreational facility.
As part of the meeting, there was a public hearing on the proposed Miracle League field. Brian Caine, Director of the Miracle League of Greater Flint, spoke of the importance of the project stating, “There are 9,470 disabled kids in Genesee County who need this field so they can have the experience of playing on a team.”
Members of Grand Blanc High School’s Miracle League Club and the Miracle League of Greater Flint’s Board of Directors were also at the meeting in a show of support for the initiative.
Congratulations to the Great Lakes Bay Miracle League who were the featured guests on ABC 12 News This Morning today. Reporter Marc Jacobson showcased the Bridgeport-based organization, and helped promote the beginning of league sign-ups for this spring. We wish them the best of luck! Let’s all plan to make a trip to Bridgeport this year to show those amazing Michigan Miracle Leaguers our support!

We are thrilled about the new club at Grand Blanc High School!
The new GBHS Miracle League Club is a group of 36 students who are dedicating their time and talents to help the Miracle League of Greater Flint raise money for the future Miracle League field in Genesee County. We can’t wait to see what happens as they put all their energy into this huge endeavor. Glad they’re on our team!

We’re on a mission.
Genesee County has nearly 10,000 kids with disabilities. They need a recreation area that is welcoming and accommodating. That’s why we need a miracle–a Miracle League Field.
The Miracle League of Greater Flint joins a national network of more than 200 Miracle Leagues in communities around the country. For the last two years we have worked with leadership in Mundy Township to make this field a reality. In the next few months, we are hoping to announce some exciting news on our progress!
For now, we need you and others who want to help build the Miracle League field. If you want to help, send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
