Corp Vice President of Special Projects George Habel continues to feature great things on his blog, Note to Self. This week Habel shared about the national spotlight NBC recently brought to the Miracle League of the Triangle, a non-profit close to the heart of Habel and the Durham Bulls. Here’s what he had to say:
NBC Reports: Miracle League
NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt was on location in Durham for the network’s May 11th broadcast, and our Miracle League project received national attention. Thank you, NBC!
The 6:30 national news broadcast closed with an affecting story about Miracle League of the Triangle. It was shot the previous Saturday at the Andy’s Foundation Miracle League field in Cary.
Bulls Manager Jared Sandberg, several players and front office staffers were volunteers.
The NBC story noted that $1.5mm has been raised for Durham’s Miracle League field. That’s a great start, but the goal is $2.5mm. We’ve launched an All-Star Campaign to close the gap. We’re reaching out for $5,000 pledges, payable over five years. 100 of those will reap an additional half million dollars. All-Star Campaign details + pledge form. Let’s build a Miracle League field for Durham!
Thanks to Corp’s George Habel for this capcom story & for these capcom photos.
