BENEFITING: MCKINNEY ROTARY FOUNDATION
Imagine a playground where children of all abilities and ages are able to play together, with a focused consideration for children with special needs. The Rotary Clubs of McKinney have joined together to make this vision a reality in partnership with the City of McKinney. Over 10% of students registered with MISD are designated as special needs. We are raising the additional funding needed to make sure that phase II of Bonnie Wenk park includes this specialized playground and equipment. By definition, an "All Abilities" playground expands the focus of a standard playground to allow children with special needs (down's syndrome, autism, muscular dystrophy, visual and hearing impairments, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other challenges) to experience the "Gift of Play" alongside other children.
