Building an Inclusive Community
In 2007, CASE Credit Union's Board of Directors established CASE Cares, a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization. CASE Cares then worked collaboratively with DeWitt Charter Township to bring the CASE Cares Miracle Field to mid-Michigan. A barrier-free ballpark with a specially designed rubber field surface, CASE Cares Miracle Field is now home to The Miracle League of Mid-Michigan. The land for the field was donated by DeWitt Charter Township, and thanks to many generous donations and a Michigan Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund grant, ground was broken for this project in August of 2011, including barrier-free restroom facilities and a concession stand.
CASE Cares Miracle Field is located in Valley Farms Park in DeWitt Charter Township. A volunteer-board guides strategic development of the MLMM for sustained growth, and DeWitt Area Recreation Authority oversees and implements league play and activities.
