The multi-day build started with a celebrity construction kickoff on Thursday, June 10, where Julia Jones, Tinsel Korey, and Alex Meraz were on hand to prep the site, which will become the school’s first playground in 60 years and the only playground within a two-mile radius.
On Saturday, June 12, local leaders and hundreds of volunteers from the school, community and UnitedHealthcare gathered to turn an empty blacktop into a new playground, along with side projects like planting gardens and painting murals. Saturday’s event also incorporated a Fun and Fit Fest, which includes free health screenings, informational booths, free healthy snacks and other family focused activities.
