Dream Playground Built by Disney VoluntEARS Brings Magic to Local Children
More than 200 Disney VoluntEARS brought a bit of magic to Central Florida local children by building a dream playground at the Orlando Day Nursery – in less than a day!
On March 16th, the Disney VoluntEARS threw themselves into the task of building a safe playground and vegetable garden that will serve over 300 local children. The playground design was actually based on drawings the children made and took less than 6 hours to complete – an amazing feat, and proof positive that a little elbow grease goes a long way.
The VoluntEARS moved enough safety surfacing to cover almost 10 NBA-sized basketball courts and mixed nearly 10,000 gallons of concrete by hand in order to create this safe play space for the children to enjoy.
Playground construction marked the first in a series of events leading up to the Disney Magic Of Healthy Living – The Weekend, a first-ever event that celebrates 50 children from around the nation and their winning essays on how to live a healthy life. The event has promised to be a fun, eye-opening experience to teach children new foods and activities which enable them to live a healthier lifestyle.
