Please join us in Nay Aug Park's inaugural race to raise money towards the installation of a Special Needs Playground. Help us create a fun place in the park where children and adults with special needs can join other families and friends . Help them to be able to enjoy a relaxing playtime in a healthy, social skill building and learning environment. This will be an interactive/learning atmosphere that will utilize the natural landscape of the park, the butterfly garden, pathways and trees.

The play equipment will allow everyone to enjoy time together, side by side. It will consist of climbing, glides, swings and slides. We want all individuals to enjoy Nay Aug Park. It is a beautiful park that offers a safe and clean venue.

Please join us as a walker/runner or donor. Your fees and donations will all go to cover the cost of this much needed project.
