Grants Pass, Ore. -- On Mother's day 2013 NBC 5 covered a story about Isaac Pinon, a six-year-old who suffers from a tumor growth on his spine. His Mother, Mona, has been working hard to create a fully handicap accessible playground for him and other children with disabilities.

Pinon started the Blue Slide Project in 2011. She wanted to convert the playground at Parkside Elementary. She said half of the playground is handicap ready and in June they'll be starting phase 2.

"Phase 2 is removing all the rocks and making the entire playground accessible and we will have the only all inclusive playground in southern Oregon so that's exciting," said Pinon.

Pinon said they still need six volunteers for phase 2 which starts June 23rd.

Volunteers must be able to lift heavy materials.
