Our banner program, Play it Forward, constructs custom playgrounds for children undergoing the debilitating treatment of pediatric cancer. Often times, making it out to the local park requires a monumental effort for these children . Additionally, the combination of a weakened immune system and the environment of a public playground can sometimes outweigh the positive effects of exercise and play. The volunteers of the Play It Forward program provide these children (selected randomly with aid of various local hospitals and organizations) the ability enjoy the therapeutic benefits of playing at the park mere steps from their homes.
Each playset we build not only rewards a child for their courage and perseverance in their battle with the illness, it also provides them with a bridge to dissolve social awkwardness among their peers due to the effects of the disease and its tolling treatments.
