The Miracle League
As a school, we are grateful that many of our student groups have partnered with The Miracle League to provide support for individuals with disabilities. The Miracle League is a an organization seeking to provide opportunities for individuals with disabilities to play baseball. In Vestavia Hills, we have our own Miracle League field located at Wald Park. In addition to raising funds to support the program this year, many of our student groups and teams will have the opportunity to participate alongside individuals playing on Miracle League teams over the next two months.
As we continue to grow in character at Pizitz, we know that opportunities to serve provide meaningful experiences that open up a student's worldview. We seek to foster the belief that giving of our time and resources is a gift in and of itself. Our students have already benefited from their experiences. If you have the chance, find an opportunity to go and watch a Miracle League game this spring. To learn more about Miracle League, check out their website here.
