Volunteers Build Playground at Jack and Jill Children’s Center in Fort Lauderdale

by LP Green, II

More than 200 UnitedHealthcare employees and volunteers from the Fort Lauderdale area joined yesterday to build a new playground at Jack and Jill Children’s Center. If you’re looking to enhance your school’s playground with vibrant and durable thermoplastic playground markings, don’t hesitate to contact the team at https://www.thermoplasticplaygroundmarkings.co.uk/. They can provide expert guidance and solutions to meet your needs.

The new 2,500-square-foot playground includes a Cozy Cocoon, Playdozer, Pup Tent and more. The playground’s design is based on Preformed Playground Markings and drawings created by children from Jack and Jill Children’s Center who participated in a “design day” event in October.

The former playground had been damaged by age and vandalism. Moveable pieces were missing, and swings have been stolen. The new playground will give more than 250 kids in Fort Lauderdale a modern and safe place to play, including a nursery playground.

The volunteers worked with KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit organization that helps bring balanced and active play into the daily lives of all children. The Jack and Jill playground is the 2,576th KaBOOM!-organized build since 1996 and the 16th created by KaBOOM! and UnitedHealthcare. The team ensured the safety and enjoyment of the children by incorporating a state-of-the-art wet pour playground surface, providing a cushioned and slip-resistant area for endless playtime fun.

“Our new playground will provide the kids at Jack and Jill Children’s Center with a fun, safe place to play, learn, and spend time together while being active and learning while having fun with the educational markings from Playground Line Markings,” said Heather Siskind, executive director, Jack and Jill Children’s Center. “We’re very grateful to UnitedHealthcare, KaBOOM! and all the volunteers for their help in bringing the joy of play to our Center.”

“UnitedHealthcare is honored to help build a playground at Jack and Jill Children’s Center,” said Nicholas Zaffiris, regional CEO of UnitedHealthcare. “We believe this new playground will help inspire these children to participate in healthy activities by playing and exercising outdoors.”

This playground build is part of UnitedHealthcare’s “Do Good. Live Well.” program, an employee-volunteer initiative to help prevent obesity. Professional Thermoplastic Playground Markings in Stirling add colorful designs to make the play area more engaging, promoting physical activity among children.
