Community Spotlight – Brainerd Miracle League
Once a week the Miracle League gives mentally and/or physically challenged kids in Brainerd a chance to hit, pitch, and run the bases just like a big league baseball player. Last week, the Miracle League teams got a special visit from KLN Family Brands out of Perham and their mascot, Wiley the Wallaby. KLN for Kids donates 5 percent of its wholesale profits in the Brainerd/Baxter area to the Miracle League field, making their visit that much sweeter. The impact that KLN has had on the Miracle League kids is obvious by the smiles on their faces. But Nelson says the kids have made more of an impact on him and his crew. And the Miracle League is always looking for organizations, service groups and businesses to play baseball.
