Red-tailed Hawk Park Inclusive Playground

An opportunity for an Inter-Club Project with the Rotary Club of Aurora.

The Rotary Club of Aurora and the City of Aurora are sponsoring the development of the first playground in the Metro area that is ACCESSIBLE and INCLUSIVE to children with disabilities and their care-givers.

The playground will be located at Red-tailed Hawk Park located just east of E-470 and south of Arapahoe Road.  This park is anticipated to be a destination point for those with disabilities from around the region.

The Rotary Club of Aurora is raising funds for this wonderful park that will serve the youth of the area.  The Rotary club of Aurora has committed to raise $250,000 in order to get matching grants from several foundations who are committed to this project and needs our assistance.  The Optimist Clubs serve youth and what better way to do this than assist the Rotary on this amazing project.

We are hoping that all of our clubs can raise a minimum of $500 and in addition that many members will assist on their own. Once the playground is built recognition will be given to donors.  It will be wonderful when the Optimists are recognized for helping with this wonderful project.

It is suggested that every club that makes a contribution to the project do it on behalf of the “Optimist International, Colorado/Wyoming District” The bigger the amount, the larger the size of the name recognition.

Make the check payable to the “Aurora Rotary Foundation.”

Checks may be mailed to the Foundation at PO BOX 440567, Aurora, CO 80044-0567.

To ensure the Optimist Clubs receive recognition you may mail the checks (made out to the Aurora Rotary Foundation) to me and I will deliver them as a group to the Foundation.
