Meet Myles

Meet Myles! This 14-year-old is the life of the party who never misses an opportunity to be part of the action. Myles lives with Hemimegalencephaly, a rare genetic condition that causes part of the brain to be abnormally larger than the rest. Due to his condition, Myles lives with developmental delays and a lack of mobility.

Myles’ goal in life is to be seen and heard. From birth, medical professionals have claimed that his quality of life would be questionable and this statement has become his motivation. Despite the continued judgement this young man faces, cheering on others has always brought him the joy. This amazing character trait leads to his love for mascots! Mascots and Myles share a heart for supporting others.

Myles enjoys everything about the atmosphere of America’s pastime – baseball! Instead of enjoying peanuts and Cracker Jacks, you can find him enjoying a cheeseburger while he roots for his favorite team, the Baltimore Orioles.

Myles has been chosen as a Dream Recipient by the Georgetown Collegiate Dream Team. These students are excited to help him achieve his sports dream of being on field at Oriole Park at Camden Yards with the players and The Oriole Bird!

Myles's Dream

Myles’ Baltimore Orioles Dream was one for the books! Myles and the Dream Team spent time at the National Aquarium, one of Myles’ favorite places. After soaking up time with the dolphins and sharks, the team enjoyed a delicious lunch at Nick’s Fish House, where Myles was surprised with Nick’s goodies and a personalized note.

Upon arrival at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Myles was given a swag bag with lots of Orioles goodies before heading to the field for batting practice. Here, Myles met Mychal Givens, Danny Coulombe, and Kyle Gibson. Myles’ dad also did an interview with Orioles broadcaster, Brett Hollander. Myles headed to his seat with lots of autographs!

In the third inning, Myles’ Dream came true when the Oriole Bird hand delivered a cheeseburger…which was Myles exact request! The joy on Myles’ face was unmatched as he lived out his Dream on the big screen. Special thanks to the Orioles for introducing Myles on screen and for helping to make his Dream come true!

While the Orioles didn’t end the night with a W, the Dream Team loved every second of their time together and “rallying” together in the 9th inning. Shout out to the Georgetown University Collegiate Dream Team for making Myles’ Dream come true!

Special thanks to the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore for hosting the Dream Team and to West Springfield HS for hosting a school-wide Dream send-off.
