Rally for Miracle League

On Aug. 9, the Miracle League of San Diego hosted their fifth annual Rally for the Kids Baseball Backyard event at the Pacific Athletic Club in Carmel Valley.

The event was the culmination of the three-month Rally for the Kids fundraiser, which began in June. The fundraiser consisted of a variety of special events and classes, such as a tennis tournament, family run/walk, cycling classes and a home run derby.

This is the second year that athletic club and the Miracle League of San Diego have partnered for the fundraiser, which aims to raise more than $85,000 for Miracle League, a charitable organization that provides children with mental or physical challenges an opportunity to play baseball as a team member in an organized league.

Miracle League, which operates two leagues throughout the year, currently plays all of its games at Miracle Field at San Dieguito County Park. The state-of-the-art facility features synthetic rubber turf designed to accommodate wheelchairs, eliminate barriers to disabled or visually impaired players, and help prevent injuries.
