In 2006, Callie began her journey as an athlete with the Miracle League of Frisco. Since then, this organization has given her the opportunity to be a member of different sports teams, which may never have happened otherwise. As a Miracle League athlete, it doesn't matter how fast she can run, how hard she can kick, or how far she can hit. She is accepted and cheered for by her teammates and fans in the stands. During games, she is celebrated for what she can do, not what she can't. Without the Miracle League of Frisco, Callie may never know the joy of hearing the cheers of her name as she crosses the finish line or home plate.
I love participating in the Miracle League of Frisco. I play basketball, baseball and track. I especially love running in the Turkey Trot every Thanksgiving! I love playing sports because I've watched them on TV with my Mommy and Daddy since I was just a baby and I've been watching my sister play them all her life. I also wanted to be part of a team. I love hearing people cheer for me. I feel really good about myself when I play sports. I feel like there's nothing different about me at all. Thank you Miracle League for giving me a chance to play!
Starting in 2012, Breanna began playing baseball with the Miracle League of Frisco. As a Miracle League athlete, Breanna has participated in baseball, soccer, basketball, and track. Since then, the North Texas Turkey Trot has become a Thanksgiving tradition for Breanna and her family. Her little brother Travis wants to be her Miracle League buddy when he gets old enough. Without the Miracle League of Frisco, Breanna may never have known the joy of crossing the finish line and scoring a goal. Our volunteer organization is dedicated to making a place for all children, no matter their limitations. Breanna, we celebrate you and your accomplishments!

I’m your all-around athlete. Put me in the game, let me play, and watch what happens! I began playing sports with the Miracle League of Frisco when I was eleven. That was five years ago. Since then, I’ve participated in baseball, bowling, and soccer. I’ve played three seasons for Team United. Coach Henderson is the best! He’s friendly and takes time to show me how to kick the ball. The thing I like most about Miracle League, they don't treat me different. They let me play. I like being part of a team, being one of the guys, and making it happen on the field. And, that’s the way it should be.
