More than 200 children and adults gathered in front of the outdoor basketball court at the Bridge Community Church on Sept. 10 to help build the playground at the Central Texas Ability Sports Complex in one day.

Central Texas Ability Sports won the “Let’s Play” Kaboom Grant to build a playground at their Ability Sports Complex in June. Texas Blue Cross and Blue Shield agreed to be their national donating partner. The organization agreed to donate a large sum to Kaboom for their part of the Community Playscape. They are also donated a full covered shaded area.

“Many Thanks to Blue Cross and Blue Shield along with KaBOOM being our Funding Partners,” said John Lorek, executive director at Central Texas Sports Ability. “But a huge Thank you to the 180 Adult Volunteers and 40 Children Volunteers who helped make it happen, [including] employees from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, members of The Bridge Community Church, Member the CTX Ability Sports Families, Members of Chive Nation, Members of Operation Supply Drop, Members of the Young Men’s Service League of Round Rock, Hutto Community Members, and Community Members from Fort hood to San Marcos came to Hutto to help build this Incredible Park.”
