This Rockies season, there is a new feature at Coors Field. UCHealth has installed an 18'x30' target in the left field stands that will act as a vehicle for charitable giving.
Throughout the season, each time a Rockies home run ball hits any part of the "Hit the Mitt" target directly, UCHealth will make a donation of $5,000 via the Colorado Rockies Foundation to Gold Crown Foundation.
UCHealth is a nationally recognized, nonprofit network of 10 acute care hospitals and more than 100 clinics along the Front Range, whose mission is to improve the lives of people in Colorado and beyond. With University of Colorado Hospital as its academic anchor, UCHealth is uniquely able to provide advanced treatments and innovative clinical trials, ensuring excellent care and outcomes for more than 1.3 million patients each year.
