Mardy McGarry - Possibility Playground
Her goal in 2007 was to create a playground for kids with special needs. $450,000 and over 2,000 volunteers later the playground was built by May 31, 2009. "Traditional playgrounds are often inaccessible to children with disabilities. Or at the most, offering one or two pieces of equipment that they may be able to negotiate. At Possibility Playground, ALL children are able to play shoulder to shoulder." from the Possibility Playground website.
“My children have taught me so much and have challenged me to always think outside the box and imagine the possibilities.” Mardy McGarry (on the left).
