The No Child Left Out Project

I was just made aware of this project today, and I'm so excited about it!

The 'No Child Left Out' is a Non-Profit Organization that is planning the dream of Syracuse's 'Sunshine Playground.' The playground will include features that will allow all children to play side-by-side and truly enjoy being children! To allow for wheelchair access, there will be transfer stations, ramps, wider paths, stable surfaces, table play, ample space around equipment, swings to accommodate children in wheelchairs, as well as auditory and tactile elements.

The exciting part about this is that the location of this park will only be a few minutes from our house.  Of course we would LOVE to have a place like this for when Carter is old enough to enjoy it.  How cool is that?!

So, to my Utah peeps, I'd like to make you aware of a few events going on to support this wonderful cause.  You can be sure that we're going to try to make it to these and support the building of this playground as much as we can.
