Description

About 200 workers and volunteers from Let’s Play, an initiative of the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, their non-profit partner KaBOOM!, Speedway, and the YMCA of Florida’s First Coast, joined forces on Saturday to build a new playground from the ground up at the YMCA at Baptist North in Jacksonville, FL. The playground will help provide local children with a safe place to play and get the exercise needed to stay healthy.  | Buy Photos
