Playset for Kate McRae

Most of the play set project is in place. There is some work left, so we still need your help! Sod has been donated. In ground sprinkling is going in soon. Companies are donating their time. In the next couple weeks, we should see an amazing finished project where there used to be empty space.

The company that has designed Kate's playset also designed the
one here. Kate's will look similar.

Many of you have already read about Kate McRae. If not, click >>RTC<< or caringbridge. This sweet, five-year-old girl from Phoenix was just recently diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor and is currently finishing her fourth round of chemo. She has recently expressed how much she wants a play set, and we would like to surprise her with one when she gets home.

We have been in close contact with Kate's parents, and this is something that they would love to see happen. There is even a specific kind of swing that she likes to use. There is so little that we can do for her other than pray. This doesn't change everything, but it might make life at home a little more enjoyable.

Here is a picture of the space that we have to use. We can use the whole dirt area. The area is 20' x 30', and in addition to the playset, we need to cover it with sod and sprinkling.
