Blue Slide Project entering phase 2

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, hasbeen working hard to create a fully handicapaccessibleplayground for him and other children withdisabilities.

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.
