Thank you to the more than 250 run, walk and rollers, who gathered at Possibility Playground in Port Washington’s Upper Lake Park Sunday, May 31, to raise more than $8,000 for Ozaukee County’s first universally accessible playground for children of all abilities.
Special thanks to the pledge-getters, who proved that a few people can make a huge difference. It’s not too late to turn in pledge money. It really adds up!
A special thank you to the people who volunteered and supported the event: The Friends of Possibility Playground, Port Washington Kiwanis Club, Port Washington Lion’s Club, American Legion Post 82, Family Fun Land, Johnson School Bus, Portal Industries, Big Apple Bagels and Alterra Coffee.
Thank you to the City of Port Washington and the Port Washington Police Department for helping to make the event run smoothly. We’d like to thank Sara Grover and the Main Street Program for allowing us to participate in the Community Street Festival, which was a great way to end the event.
In an amazing show of volunteerism, Ozaukee County residents and people from throughout the state came together last September to build Possibility Playground in only a week. The money raised by events such as the Run, Walk and Roll will ensure that the playground is maintained for years to come.
