Alamance Achieves, in collaboration with StriveTogether and local community partners, has applied for a KaBoom playground to be built in our community. As a national non-profit, KaBoom is dedicated to ensuring that ALL kids get a childhood filled with the active play they need to thrive.
We know access to play fosters emotional and social development. Swings, slides, climbers and other types of equipment encourage children to develop their balance, speed, agility and coordination. Getting kids in the habit of exercise and making it a fun activity can help encourage kids to stay active throughout their lives.
This playground would help strengthen our grid of resources in an underserved community to ensure that all children are plugged in to the opportunities they need to excel. Stay tuned for more information about how you can support our efforts to bring a KaBoom playground to our area.
