ULI Washington Service Opportunity: Miracle League of Alexandria
The Young Leaders Group Community Service Committee and the Miracle League of Alexandria (MLA) are teaming up for an event on Saturday, October 20. The MLA has been providing recreation opportunities for Alexandria’s special needs community since 2010. In 2012, the Kelley Cares Miracle Field was opened at 1108 Jefferson Street to meet the needs of the community. A Miracle Field is a rubberized baseball and softball diamond that fully accommodates wheelchairs and walkers for ball sports.
The event on October 20 will be a baseball game, and volunteers are needed for several aspects of the game. Volunteers will be helping participants handling the ball, running the bases, batting, announcing the game, playing catcher, and cheering on participants. The game runs from 1:00 – 2:30 pm, and volunteers are expected to arrive by 12:30 for an orientation. Following the game, a local men’s fraternity will be hosting a cookout on the site, and volunteers are encouraged to stay and mingle with other volunteers and event participants. In the event of rain, the game will be moved indoors to the Nannie J Lee Center, located at the same location.
Event is from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM with an optional for volunteers cookout afterwards until 4 (The cookout is optional, but it would be great for volunteers to stay).
Rain or Shine: In case of rain, the event will be at the Nannie J. Lee Recreation Center (same address)
Clothing: Athletic gear you feel comfortable moving around in
