WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The rain didn’t dampen any spirits in West Hartford on Monday for the next installment of 20 Towns in Twenty Days.

Not far from West Hartford’s town center, Eyewitness News stopped by a ball field developed by the Miracle League of Connecticut.

The organization raised money to build a special field, playground, picnic tables and a concession stand.

Miracle League Field offers a place to play for more than 90 children with physical and developmental challenges, but the organization also does a lot more and they are looking to expand.

"After meeting our families, we found out that there's really a general lack of programming, recreational programming for kids with special needs so we just sort of opened up the floodgates and we now do a bike camp in the summer, we do adaptive swimming lessons,” said Mike Michaud of the Miracle League of Connecticut.

"Bringing your child to this sort of environment, you don't expect them to be the best player necessarily, but they're welcome on the field - no matter their ability, there's a role for them,” said Meg Green, who is a parent and member of the organization’s board.

Channel 3 presented the organization with a $1,000 donation on Monday.
