Kingfish Partner with Kenosha Dream Playground Project
The Kingfish are proud to announce a partnership with the Kenosha Dream Playground Project this summer.
During all 2015 Kingfish home games, the Kenosha Dream Playground Project will have a table located next to fan services where Kingfish fans can sign up to help with the community build of a fully accessible dream playground starting September 7th.
The Kenosha Dream Playground Project (KDPP) is a group of citizens dedicated to developing an inclusive, accessible playground in Kenosha. The playground will be built in Petzke Park, 1700 29th Street. Volunteering for the community build is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of history in Kenosha.
The mission of the KDPP is to develop a safe, fully inclusive, accessible playground that will allow children of all abilities to play together, learn from each other, value each other’s differences, and find strength to overcome challenges, thus creating a truly integrated environment where compassion, acceptance, and friendship can flourish.
The Kingfish fully believe in the need for an accessible and inclusive playground in the Kenosha area. The Kingfish applaud the efforts by the KDPP and will continue to support their mission to build an accessible playground for all children.
Please stop by the Kenosha Dream Playground Project table during the 2015 season at Simmons Field to help the KDPP and the Kenosha area.
