Public Speaks Out at MLGF Town Hall

Local residents, teachers, and rehabilitation experts came together on Wednesday, September 27 at the first Miracle League of Greater Flint (MLGF) Town Hall meeting at Genesys Banquet and Conference Center in Grand Blanc. The purpose of the meeting was to listen to community stakeholders about their ideas for the proposed Miracle League field.

MLGF Board members Brian Caine, Kay Doerr, Sophia Bong, and Jen Hogan listened as people made suggestions for ways that the field and the park could be built to be fully accessible for all people. Ideas ranged from increasing parking space sizes to make room for vans with ramps for wheelchairs access, to providing charging stations for people who need to charge oxygen tanks. One attendee suggested private restrooms so those who need space and privacy to fully lay down can have the type of facility that they need.

Doerr also announced to the crowd that Mundy Township is awaiting word from the Department of Natural Resources on a grant that would provide funding for the installation of a new entrance to the proposed park.

The Miracle League field is part of a larger future park plan that will be built in Mundy Township on Hill Road near Assenmacher’s Cycling Center and the Home Depot.

High Fives for MLGF!

Did you know that April 21st is National High Five Day?

Grand Blanc High School‘s Miracle League Club went all out to celebrate the day with their first fundraising event for the Miracle League of Greater Flint (MLGF). The idea was simple–giving each other high fives, and making a donation of $2 to paint your hand to show your handprint on a banner. The activity brought more than funds to the effort–it also raised awareness about the work that is being done to bring a Miracle League field to Mundy Township.

Nearly $400 was raised for MLGF. High fives to the GBHS Miracle League Club all the amazing volunteers who made this event happen!

MLGF Gets Major Boost at Mundy Township Board Meeting

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.

Welcome to the Club!

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!
