Miracle Field Fundraiser: Raising Money to Give Kids with Special Needs the Opportunity to Play America’s Favorite Pastime

Woodbury, MN, September 08, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Wade Hanson, along with 5 other members of the Minnesota Network, have joined forces to raise money for the Miracle League Field at Beilenberg Sports Center in Woodbury. The Miracle Field consists of a baseball/softball field with a rubber surface that allows kids in wheel chairs and walking devices to play ball. Currently these kids have to drive over 30 miles to play. The Woodbury Rotary club began fundraising efforts in 2007 to build this special field. They successfully raised $215,000, but $35,000 is still needed to complete the project.

There is no cost for admission, but donations are greatly appreciated and 100% of the proceeds will go to the remaining $35,000 of the $250,000 needed to build the Jeff Hanson Miracle League Field as part of the Bielenberg Sports Complex. The Miracle Field is the only field of its kind located in the East Metro area. A specially designed rubber turf field allows athletes with mental and/or physical challenges to play baseball.
