Peterborough Challenger Baseball is looking for your vote to help it win $50,000 from Goeasy, a lease-to-own and financial services company which has a local franchise in Peterborough.

The Peterborough Challenger Baseball organization provides a formalized opportunity for special needs children and youth to participate in the game of baseball.

They’d use the $50,000 prize to help fund the building of an all-access baseball diamond, with rubberized base paths, and home plate area. The all-access base paths and home plate area would allow participants in the Peterborough Challenger Baseball League the opportunity to safely run, have their wheelchairs operated or pushed, and players using walkers or crutches have the chance to walk on a surface that is supportive and safe to do so.
