Make-A-Wish Playground

On Monday November 16th BlueRidge Playgrounds went to McLeansville North Carolina, just outside of Greensboro.  When we arrived we met Shawn, diagnosed with Lymphoma. His family, and all of the folks from Make-A-Wish Foundation were there to pitch in and help build the play set.  Shawn’s original wish was to go to Disney World, but when he was asked what his wish was he said “I want a giant playground!”  We were delighted to have the opportunity to grant Shawn’s wish; his giant playground has a tube slide, rock wall, swings, and all of the bells and whistles that make a playground so much fun (he really liked the periscope).  Once it was completed, we couldn’t keep him off of the play set, we immediately knew he loved it.  We know this playground is no Disney World, but the smile on his face said it all, it was awesome to make Shawn’s wish come true.  Make-A-Wish is an amazing organization that helps children’s dreams come true!   Here are some of the pictures of Shawn’s Playground from start to finish.20151116_11213420151116_11591120151116_11574620151116_12152220151116_12453020151116_13025220151116_15015820151116_150538
