Donate to our Inclusive Fitness Playground Project for the Union Bay area. Sixteen pieces of climbing, swinging, balancing, and other equipment to get kids moving. We have chosen equipment that kids will use sensory, tactile, visual, problem solving skills and motor skills for balance, coordination, core body strength, lower body strength, motor planning, and upper body strength. Whew, this is way beyond the swings and a teeter totter!
With your donation we will purchase the equipment from a company that provides professional supervision for the installation of our community build project. The Friends will use volunteers to build the playground to bring our communities together while saving money. If you can’t donate money, we would love to have a donation of your time in the community build in the spring of 2020.
