The first step of the Adam's Adventure project is complete, according to organization volunteer Cathy Madore.
The land for the ADA-accessible playground at is cleared and ready for construction, due to the hard work and generosity of volunteers. Madore hopes the cleared land will help residents visualize the playground.
"We wanted to clear the land and give people an idea of where it's going to be," Madore said. The next step in the process is to create a diagram or "footprint" of the playground, she said. The group will also be focusing on large fundraising efforts.
"We are really gearing up right now to pursue the larger donations," she said. According to the Adam's Adventure website, the group is aiming to raise $500,000. Currently, they have collected $52,094, according to the site.
The next Adam's Adventure fundraiser is the "Tolland Spring Teezer" scheduled for May 17. More information is available on the group's website.
Adam's Adventure was formed after contracted bacterial meningitis and lost his eyesight several years ago.
