Children with disabilities have the
opportunity to play baseball and other sports just like every other child in the Big
Bend area, thanks to collaboration between the County and
City governments and local agencies. With significant contributions,
including $75,000 from Leon County,
the use of Messer North Softball Complex from the City of Tallahassee,
and fundraising efforts by Kiwanis Clubs, a Miracle Sports field is a reality in Leon County.
This field will be constructed with rubber for
ease-of-use by wheelchairs. Even the bases and pitching mound are level
with the field, so children in wheelchairs will have free reign of the
entire field. Kiwanis has willingly taken on the role of coordination and
fundraising. Kiwanis has been integral to the project management and
success of the Miracle League Field. Division 3 Kiwanis raised the $250,000 projected cost of the field.
