FastMed Supports the Carolina Miracle League

0 Comment(s) |

FastMed Urgent Care is a proud sponsor and supporter of the Carolina Miracle League, a charitable organization that provides children with mental and/or physical challenges the opportunity to enjoy playing baseball.

The Miracle League is a special foundation that gives these children the opportunity to get out in the sunshine and enjoy playing the game of baseball, in its purest form, as a member of a team in an organized league. Children are paired with volunteer “buddies” who assist them in batting, catching, throwing and running.  Volunteers can be fellow schoolmates, parents, college students, business leaders or anyone who wishes to volunteer their time, and give a child the chance to enjoy playing baseball.

Every child gets a turn at bat and in the outfield, and every child crosses home plate. They play on a special synthetic turf field designed with custom and handicapped accessible dugouts, restrooms and drinking fountains.  During each Miracle League game, every child is given an opportunity to hit the ball and score a run.

If you know someone who has a child with a mental and/or a physical disability, the Carolina Miracle League could be their answer to enjoying the game of baseball together. Miracle League of the Triangle is based in Raleigh, NC and Charlotte YMCA Miracle League is based in Charlotte, NC. You can find, like and follow the Miracle League on Facebook and Twitter and visit their website at www.carolinamiracleleague.org for more information on how you can volunteer, participate, or simply spread the word! 

FastMed has a number of urgent care locations serving the community in and throughout Charlotte and the surrounding area including Concord, Harrisburg, Monroe, Mooresville and Salisbury. Click here for a map of our Charlotte locations or visit our office finder by clicking here.
