Julia-KadelJulia Kadel, affectionately known as Coach Kadel, is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Miracle League of Delray Beach. The mission of the Miracle League is to provide the opportunity for all children, regardless of their mental or physical abilities, to enjoy playing baseball.
Ten years ago, Julia made it her mission to make the Miracle League a part of Delray Beach’s community. Using her leadership skills, Julia met with officials from the National Miracle League Organization and the leaders of Delray Beach and Palm Beach County to enlist their support. Successful fundraising enabled the League to build a specialized, obstacle free baseball field, where 17 Saturdays a year over 100 kids come out to play.
Julia’s love for the players, their families, the volunteers and her community has made the League the success it is. Her vision for the future is to expand the Miracle League into other parts of the county and into other sports, allowing more families and players to participate in the Great American Pastime.
Coach Kadel has been a Delray Beach resident for over 17 years with her husband Jeff and their three sons who all feel blessed to be a part of this amazing community. She has served on many local committees and boards including Chairing the Education Board of Delray Beach and the fundraising committee of CROS ministries. She is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach and a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, a Palm Beach County Middle School Physical Education & Health Educator, and a middle school Youth Group leader for her local church.
Just recently she was honored by the Bethesda Hospital Foundation as a 2015 Woman of Grace. Julia believes together we are powerful & can continue to play a positive role in our community. Together, we can continue to create miracles.
