Quality Health raised $6,300.00 at their event and they don't want a single business that contributed to the event to go unnoticed.
The ability for children to play on a public playground is something most of us take for granted. We did it when we were children, and as parents and grandparents we continue to take children outside to run, jump, and climb without considering that some children find major obstacles on common playgrounds.
The sand is an obstacle for wheel chairs, small barriers and edges become tall hurdles and uneven surfaces become hazards for those with special needs.
8 Flags Playscapes, Inc.8flagsplayscapes.org/ is a non-profit located in Fernandina Beach who has decided to tackle this issue head on by building the first playground in the community for all children, Pirate Playground.
The community came together for the last weekend in March and was monumental in raising awareness about the Fernandina Beach playground with the Quality Health auction on Friday, a Heel-N-Wheel event Saturday morning and Slide Into Spring Music and Craft Beer Festival held Saturday afternoon.
Quality Health raised $6,300.00 at their event and they don’t want a single business that contributed to the event to go unnoticed.
