We are so lucky to have a neighborhood park and another neighborhood park just in the adjoining neighborhood. Our HOA is in charge of keeping up with the parks, but others around the country are not so lucky. Parks aren’t as easy to find and many of them are running out of money for the upkeep. I remember when I was growing up, to go to the park we had to walk down to the local elementary school. And we all know that schools are always running out of money.
We love playing at our park. We go out there almost every day, when it’s not raining outside. The kids climb swing and slide. We run and play hide and seek and just have tons of fun with all the kids in our neighborhood.
As budget cuts continue for schools, playgrounds and sports programs are the first to disappear leaving students with limited space to let their imaginations run wild and put simply, to play! To help kids have a safe and active space, Sprite created Sprite Spark Parks Project; a multi-year commitment to bringing a ‘spark’ to active spaces within communities across the country.
Want to nominate a park? The program is open to My Coke Rewards members who can enter for a chance to have their local school playground or athletic field refurbished. To submit your school, head to the My Coke Rewards for Schools Program and enter the point codes found on all Sprite and Sprite Zero products. If you are not yet a My Coke Rewards member, simply log on to www.mycokerewards.com and follow the prompts for new member registration.
