ROCK HILL—Rock Hill and York County are stepping into a league of their own and the local Knights are doing their part to contribute.

Miracle Park, a project designed for special needs children and adults with disabilities, received a $600 donation from Knights of Columbus Council 6756 to help their endeavors. The park, the first of its kind in South Carolina, will feature two multi-purpose fields, a playground, and retail space. Groundbreaking is expected to take place in the fall with an anticipated opening in the Spring of 2020.

Fundraising for the project’s first phase began in the spring and the Knights were quick to respond.

“We have a number of charitable projects that we support,” said Ray Howard, Grand Knight. Miracle Park is one that resonated with the group and its connections to Special Olympics.
