As part of ongoing fundraising efforts, the Miracle League of Miami-Dade County has partnered with several philanthropic organizations, including Assurant Solutions, one of our most dedicated supporters. Assurant sponsored the Miracle League exhibition game in December and pledged $10,000 to the organization.
Assurant has deep roots in Miami-Dade and always finds a way to give back to the community and make life better for families in need. The company participates as a sponsor in numerous programs, is generous with donations and encourages its employees to give back with contributions of time and money, a tradition of more than 50 years. Assurant also supports charitable giving by employees with a matching gifts program.
With the latest Assurant donation, the Miracle League is one step closer to building the Miracle League field for its children.
“Assurant has made a generous donation of $10,000,” said Karl Sturge, co-chairman of the Miracle League of Miami-Dade.
Along with financial support, Assurant is the first local business to have its employees participate on the field in a Miracle League game. Several Assurant employees received Baseball Buddy training and later served as Baseball Buddies to Miracle League youngsters.
The Miracle League of Miami Dade expresses deep appreciation for the support by the Assurant family. To see photos from recent games and find future game dates, go to www.facebook.com/MiracleLeagueOfMiamiDade.
