Special to The Indy
There will be a special Wacky Sox 5K Fun Run on October 5, 2013 in Millbrook, Alabama.
The fundraiser is sponsored by the Alabama Sox Baseball organization to promote the ongoing health and fitness of children and adults in the River Region. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Miracle League.
The Miracle League provides an opportunity for children with cognitive and/or physical challenges to play baseball. These children play on a special field made of a synthetic rubber that allows for walkers, wheelchairs, crutches, and those a little unsteady on their feet. Players that need help are assigned a "buddy" to help them bat and run the bases and field balls. The rules in the Miracle League are a little different. Every player bats, all base runners are safe, no one is ever out, and all players score. In the Miracle League, every player is a winner.
The Alabama Sox Baseball organization is a travel baseball group comprised of five teams ranging from ages 6-11 years of age. The mission of this organization is to develop skills, confidence, sportsmanship and teamwork. Through the support of
parents, volunteers and the community the Alabama Sox Baseball teams will work to improve citizenship, baseball skill, and always strive to play and live with character.
The cost for taking part in the 5K run is $20 in advance and $30 on the day of the event. Online registration is available at www.active.com until Saturday September 28, 2013.
