The Jays Care Foundaiton has made a $210,000 donation to the Miracle League of Ottawa.
David Gourlay, the president of the Miracle League, told TSN 1200's T-GOR that this puts them strikingly close to their million dollar fundraising goal for an accessible ball diamond and play structure near Navan.
"We're feeling very good about this," he said. "The TSN Kraft Celebration Tour, that gave us national profile. I mean, we're getting a lot of calls now from corporations, from small businesses, from individuals."
This first phase of funding will help them build the diamond and the play structure, while the next phase of funding wil help them install accessible bathrooms nearby.
Gourlay says they're hoping to have the park ready for next summer.
