“Giggin for a miracle” is an official licensed and sanctioned event of The Frog Giggin Tournament Series by Riverbank Products. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Miracle League of Jonesboro. What is the Miracle League of Jonesboro you ask?
According to event organizer Sharon Turman, “Miracle League is a softball/baseball league for special needs kids. With the help of the funds raised at this event and other fundraising efforts, the field that Jonesboro is going to build is designed for children and adults with special needs. They will be able to play softball and basketball on this surface which is specially made so it can accommodate wheelchairs and walkers. Adjacent to the field will be a special needs playground which will feature padded equipment to give special needs children a safe place to play.”

“This is a big deal for Jonesboro and will pull in visitors from several surrounding states.” Said Sharron
We cannot change or cure the medical issues life has dealt disabled individuals. What we can do is provide them with an opportunity to experience the joy and benefits that come from playing our national pastime-baseball.
