Real Life Experiences
Hitting a home run, horseback riding lessons, attending a sensory friendly performance of Disney's The Lion King, going to sleep away camp, vacationing in the Poconos, and creating a masterpiece are a few of the dozens of opportunities made possible from a generous bequest to NHS/AVS. Through the Walter F. and Ellen H. Nicoden Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation, financial support is available to provide enriching activities for the children and adults in NHS/AVS's care.

The Miracle League of Southwestern PA is an enjoyment for clients of all capabilities and it allows our consumers the opportunity to play a game that they would normally not be able participate in and only be able to watch from the sidelines, comments Coach Pam Kish.

Coach Susie Cassidy added, I've been blessed to work with consumers utilizing wheelchairs for the past 16 years. The Miracle League has given the ladies of Ohioview and many others the opportunity that most of them could only dream about. Consumers look forward to wearing their jersey and hat each week as they bat and circle the bases. The bus ride home is spent talking about the game and how much fun they had.
