After a long year of campaigning, fundraising, scratching and clawing, Wes’s dream of a playground in every remote northern community has begun to be realized.
This past week was memorable on so many fronts. The playground was completed the morning of Wes’s 13th birthday. How perfect was that?
We want to extend a very big thank you to Pepsi for all of their support throughout this process. Thank you for believing in a kid’s dream.
CRCS Recreation – you guys went above and beyond! Melissa, Chantal, Joe and Brant; you guys worked so hard and with open hearts, words cannot express the gratitude we have for you all.
AND – all of you who voted, donated, campaigned and put up with our unrelenting harassment… Thank you. Attawapiskat has a playground because of all of you. The joy and hope you have brought to this community will live on for generations.
Plans are already in the works for the next community. Watch for updates – and be a part of another life-changing experience.
Meegwetch (Thank you)
