Change Your World With Baseball for Special Needs

How can one encounter change your world? Meet Coach John, a volunteer coach for the Miracle League of the Triangle, and hear how one simple conversation changed his life and led to the start of the UB4ME Foundation.

In this episode, Tonya talks with John Davison, a volunteer with the Miracle League of the Triangle for over ten years. John tells what first brought him to the Miracle League and why he continues to volunteer with the organization. He also shares how that experience has led him to form the UB4ME Foundation to support other non-profit organizations as well as encourage more community support for the Miracle League.
