Marjory Stoneman Douglas student Matthew Rosenberg has found a way to give back to his community through his passion for running.

An avid runner, umpire, and member of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas cross country team, Rosenberg, a sophomore, wanted to raise money to help kids who can not afford to play baseball be able to play the sport while sharing his love of running and desire to stay in shape during the off-season.

After approaching the Board of Directors at Parkland Little League, he proposed the idea, which was later accepted.

“This clinic is so important to me because I want to help kids stay active, in shape, and ready for their upcoming baseball season while raising money for kids who otherwise would not be able to play baseball,” Rosenberg said.

The camp began on December 3 and is broken into two one-hour sessions on Saturdays at the baseball fields at Terramar Park.  The 5-7-year-olds start at 9 a.m., followed by the 8-10-year-olds at 10 a.m. Families can sign up for as many sessions as they want at Parkland Running Clinic.

Nick Rosenberg, a Little League all-star player, is an assistant coach and handles the finances involved. All coaches are volunteers, and all proceeds go towards a Little League scholarship fund.
