A Better Region 8: Miracle League's own 'Field of Dreams'

A Better Region 8: Miracle League's own 'Field of Dreams'

The Miracle League of Jonesboro is making a wonderful impact in Region 8. It's a league and playground for special needs kids. The new field and playground is at the Southside Softball Complex and specially made to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers.

Last week, the organization had an unconventional fundraiser. The inaugural "giggin' for a Miracle." Over 30 teams entered raising thousands of dollars. This is what Region 8 is about - we take care of folks who are doing good things in our community!

The Miracle League has another dream: they're inviting "Field of Dreams" star Kevin Costner to come to Jonesboro for the grand opening of the new field this fall. To make this happen, they produced a YouTube video inviting Mr. Costner and every time I watch it, it makes me really happy.

So here's a way for all of us to help. If we share the video enough on social media and invite our friends to share it, the video could go viral, then we have a better chance of getting Mr. Costner to join us for the grand opening.

Simply go to the Miracle League's Facebook page, grab the link and share the YouTube video. Having Kevin Costner dedicate the new field here in Jonesboro for the Miracle league is a great dream to have. Doing what we can to make that dream come true will make this A Better Region 8.
