THE STORY:

Hello, I heard about this amazing opportunity to fundraise for a charity that I think is inspiring and whose mission rings true to my heart.

I visited the LATCP playground this past spring for the first time and I was in awe that such a great place like this was conceived and built to completion.  If you see my facebook post from May 16, you can see more pictures of the playground (and my little ones having a good ole time!).  I am excited to be a part of this fundraiser and hope to raise some serious dough!

Let All the Children Play wrote -

Let All The Children Play is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives and dignity of all children by developing accessible playgrounds and inclusive recreation programs allowing children with disabilities the opportunity to experience play, side-by-side with their able-bodied peers.

As an authentic representation of Team LATCP’s belief in the spirit and power of inclusion, I will be running/walking as a guide for an Achilles International athlete. Achilles in an organization whose mission and programs powerfully align with LATCP’s mission of inclusion. The organization provides athletes with disabilities with a community of support. Able-bodied volunteers/guides and disabled runners come together to compete in an environment of support and community.

LATCP members will be competing alongside the Achilles athletes as their guides (mainly the visually and physically impaired), and providing them with the support needed to cross the finish line.
Guides will function as an Achilles member’s eyes, ears, guide, and motivator.

Let All The Children Play is has recently opened its 2-acre universally accessible playground in Eisenhower Park, on Long Island. The organization needs to raise funds to initiate much-needed sport and play respite programs for families within the community. Additionally the funds raised will go towards transportation and other costs to host a special play day at the Eisenhower Park playground for the Achilles Kids program.
