WWE is partnering with the national non-profit organization KaBOOM! to build a playground in New Orleans during WrestleMania Week.
KaBOOM! is dedicated to ensuring that all children get the balance of active play they need to become healthy and successful adults.
Together the partners will build a new playground at Woodland West Elementary School in Harvey, La., which serves more than 700 children in grades K-5.
To kick off the project, WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston hosted a Design Day at the school Wednesday during which children had the chance to brainstorm their dream playground.
Elements from the drawings will be incorporated into the final design for the playground, which will be constructed by WWE Superstars, WWE employees and community volunteers April 4.
The playground build serves as part of WWE’s weeklong lineup of community outreach activities leading up to WrestleMania 30, which will take place April 6 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
“We’re proud to play a small role in the great work that KaBOOM! does to ensure kids have opportunities to stay active in safe environments,” says Stephanie McMahon, chief brand officer, WWE. “Our partnership with KaBOOM! enables us to leave a lasting impact on children in New Orleans.”
