Friends of Williamston Parks has teamed up with The Get Movin’ Crew© for the 2018 Play-a-thon for the Parks on May 19 at McCormick Park. Families should register their kids at www.thegetmovincrew.com and select Friends of Williamston Parks as the school. This tool allows parents to help their kids raise money via e-mail and social media. All donations will go toward a new playground at Volunteers Community Park next to The Commons.
All students who register online and raise $10 will be entered in a raffle to win a new Kindle Fire. Plus, top earners from each age group also will be awarded prizes. The goal is to raise $15,000.
Featuring food, music, special activities and nonstop play, the Play-a-thon for the Parks will run from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Kids are encouraged to secure pledges for the number of hours they plan to play. It is open to all kids, no matter age or school they attend. Donations also may be brought to park on the day of the event.
