Sky Sox baseball fans might have wondered if the "Eliminate" shirts and signs at the Aug. 25 game were referring to the Sacramento Rivercats. Turns out it was more of a worldly mission.
The Eliminate Project is a philanthropic effort by Kiwanis International and UNICEF to wipe out the deadly maternal and neonatal tetanus that worldwide kills 60,000 babies and a large number of women each year. The goal is to immunize 100 million mothers and their babies-to-be at a cost of $1.80 for each shot.
Kiwanis members from the Rocky Mountain District combined a family day at the ballpark with fundraising and public awareness, selling "I Saved a Baby Today" stickers for $2 to cover one shot.
Participating clubs: Colorado Springs Kiwanis Club, Pikes Peak, Rampart Range, Woodland Park, Monument Hill, Manitou Springs.
