Proceeds from Go Commando will help fund The Field of Dreams, a specially designed, multipurpose sports field and family playground designed to meet the unique requirements of our county’s special needs athletes, families and support networks.
The idea is to eliminate traditional barriers that discourage special needs children and adults from being able to use a traditional field. Obstacles such as natural grass, uneven surfaces, constrained accessibility for those who are disabled, injured, or otherwise challenged will be overcome with the (Americans With Disabilities Act)-compliant poured rubber turf surfaces.
There are currently 16 organized sports teams for special needs in Clarksville-Montgomery County. A new field is hoped to support expanding to 24 teams within two years. The goal is to also create conditions to host a Special Needs World Series in Montgomery County.
