Join us (or just contribute) for accessible playgrounds!

August 30, 2011

It’s our annual pledge drive–no wait, that’s from when I was working at an NPR station–but it’s that time of year again, when we invite folks to join us on the Shane’s Inspiration 5K Walk & Roll for accessible playgrounds, at Griffith Park, September 25th (that’s a Sunday morning–you can be home by noon).    It’s a fun day, all are welcome; if you want to join our team or contribute any amount, we’re registered as Team TLC at the event’s giftberry website.  The grand marshal this year is Elle Fanning, but we’ve been involved for so long we remember when her older sister Dakota Fanning was the grand marshal, c. 2005?:
