Miracle League staying positive, settling for Top 10 prize in TSN Kraft Celebration Tour

The Miracle League of Ottawa will be settling for a $25,000 Top 10 prize in TSN's Kraft Celebration Tour.

Their project to build a baseball diamond and playground for children with special needs did not win the $100,000 grand prize.

Miracle League of Ottawa President David Gourlay tells CTV Ottawa this is not dampening their fundraising spirit.

"We're obviously disappointed by the result, but at the end of the day we have a national profile. So many people have come on board to support us. We couldn't be more ecstatic."

The project has generated more than $725,000 dollars.

The Miracle League has a goal of hitting $1,000,000 by Christmas.

First place in the Kraft Celebration Tour was won by the Barrhead Curling Club in Barrhead, Alberta.
