Review for Miracle League of Palm Beach County, Delray Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was first exposed to this amazing program in 6th grade. He volunteered to help out one Saturday and (part of a school requirement) he was so impressed (at age 12) that he decided to volunteer as a Buddy the next season and chose to make the Miracle League the recipient of his Bar Mitzvah Service project. We set up a website and he asked people to make a donation in his name, in lieu of Bar Mitzvah gifts. It was a very humbling experience. Through his efforts, he introduced a friend to Miracle League and she has been a committed volunteer too, raising nearly $50,000 in award money, to support building an inclusive playground. My son is now in 10th grade, still volunteers and currently is working on a special project to expand to this program. Hopefully he will be able to get the program up and running by the fall. Julia and Jeff Kadel, the founders of this organization, are committed beyond words. So happy that we have had the opportunity to be a small part of unique program.
