Join Cadence Bank and Sports Radio 610 in Supporting the Miracle League
Because Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play Sports
Cadence Bank proudly joins Sports Radio 610 in supporting the Miracle League and Langham Creek Family YMCA through their week-long Yuletide Drive, December 2 - 6. Together, we will help raise funds to build a new sports complex designed for special needs children and their families.
The new facility will provide families across Greater Houston a safe outlet for their special needs children where they can experience the joy and benefits that come from being part of a team and playing sports*.
A lack of facilities and programming in the Greater Houston area has made it challenging for children with a wide range of needs (autism, Down syndrome, and those who are blind, deaf or confined to a wheelchair) to play team sports.
Last year, the Langham Creek Y formed the first Miracle League program in Greater Houston. The Miracle League is currently in its third season on a temporary field and participation has been steadily increasing.
The need is stronger than ever. Approximately 63,000 children in the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown Metro Area1 are living with a disability.
Right now, a facility that accommodates special needs children in all of the following sports – Basketball, BEEP Basketball, Soccer, Baseball/Softball , Tennis, Football and Field Day Games – cannot be found in Greater Houston.
From Monday, Dec. 2 through Friday, Dec. 6, you can make a difference.
Consider a gift to the YMCA Miracle League to help raise $100,000 that will go towards the $1.6 million still needed to complete the Miracle League Sports Complex.
Gifts can be made at:
- Any Houston-area Cadence Bank branch
- Online at www.ymcahouston.org/langham-creek/miracle-league (be sure to choose Miracle League in the program designation box)
Checks should be made payable to YMCA Miracle League.

*The Miracle League Complex will have a special, resilient coating that provides a smooth, seamless surface for players and mobility equipment to maneuver. This surface provides exceptional footing and smoothness, eliminating barriers and dangers for children using walking aides or for those with visual impairments.
