Fortify Music Fest announced its support of Preston’s Playground, a local nonprofit organization focusing on raising money to build an all-inclusive playground at the Newark Reservoir.
The playground will include safe, adaptive equipment. There will be 8,400 square feet of rubberized surface material and three accessible entrances for kids with wheelchairs, braces or other mobility issues. Preston’s Playground will be a place for kids to play together, no matter their ability.
Deb Buenaga, a mom with a mission when it comes to advocating for her son, Preston, and Nic DeCaire, owner of Fusion Fitness Center and Fusion Racing, are the driving force behind the playground project. The pair and raised $500,000 but they need another $60,000 to finish the job. Visit prestonsplayground.com to find out more and see pictures of the playground which is already under construction.
To further support Preston’s Playground, Fortify Music Fest has selected Wooden Wheels to be the “Official Bike Shop” of the Fest. Wooden Wheels donated a Norco Indie 3 bike and $100 worth of specialized customization. The Norco Indie 3 bike is designed to help modern cyclists navigate unexpected situations and delivers a fast, efficient and comfortable ride. The bike will be part of a raffle, and proceeds will support Preston’s Playground.
Raffle tickets are $5 and can be purchased at fortifyfest.com. Donations can also be made online and at Fortify Fest on Sept. 29.
