KaBOOM! Playground Build
August 7 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
On August 7, volunteers from Tthe CarMax Foundation and Focus Points will join KaBOOM! to transform an empty site on the Focus Points campus into a kid-designed, state-of-the-art playground that can be enjoyed by the community. The CarMax Foundation has provided the majority of funding for the playground through its national partnership with KaBOOM!, supporting The Foundation’s commitment to children’s healthy living. Through this partnership, KaBOOM! is creating an oasis where kids feel valued and loved, and where their potential is supported, nurtured and celebrated.
In June, kids from the surrounding community came together to draw their dream playground. The playground, inspired by their ideas, will provide thousands of children in North Denver with an engaging, safe place to play. The schedule for the day is as follows:
8:30 a.m. – 9 a.m. Kick-off ceremony
11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Best viewing of playground construction
1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Final construction phase
2:30 p.m. – 3 p.m. Ribbon-cutting ceremony
