Shriners Hospitals for Children Therapy Playground Ribbon Cutting

Please join us on September 18 at 1pm, as we celebrate the opening of Shriner's brand new Therapy Playground. This is also taking place during National Rehabilitation Awareness week.

The playground is the culmination of efforts from over the past three years, including design choices from the rehab department staff, funding through grants submitted by our Marketing, Communications, and Donor Development departments, ordering and coordination via Supply Chain staff, and grounds preparation by our Plant-Ops team.

It was generously funded by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Erie, and the John M. and Gertrude E. Petersen Foundation, with additional support from the Henry E. Niles Foundation for the purpose of extending therapy care from the rehab setting to real life, i.e. challenges and participation a child should be experiencing in life. The wood chips surface was donated by Emeritus Board Member Steve Ongley, and Walter Lipinski of Lipinski Logging and Lumber.
