Clinton’s all-inclusive playground receives $13,000 Reeves grant

Kristina McNally’s quest to complete an all-inclusive playground in Clinton has picked up even more steam this week.

“I have been applying for so many grants and working so hard for this,” McNally said.

And her efforts have been rewarded with a $13,000 grant from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation was started by Christopher Reeve, an American actor that was rendered a quadriplegic after an equestrian accident.

Now, the late Christopher Reeve’s foundation works to help organizations and individuals that support the moving forward of making American cities more inclusive for those with special needs.

The $13,000 grant will be put towards a glider, which is a piece of wheelchair accessible playground equipment that can be enjoyed by anyone.

Not only will the inclusive glider allow children with special needs to enjoy a playground, but will allow children without special needs to enjoy it with them.
