After years of hard work, Win Ferguson has raised more than $350,000 for their two new playgrounds.
 
Win Ferguson’s Playground Committee has been busy since 2015.
 
“It feels amazing,” said playground committee chair for the Win Ferguson Parent Teacher Association, Sherri Prince. "We're super excited, it's kind of surreal just to be at this point."
 
The committee did have to face many challenges, but with the help of local businesses, they were able to make their dreams a reality.
 
"The playground committee handled the grants and the sponsorship and then our fundraising team handled the fundraisers. We each sort of worked on our own pieces of it, which brought it together as a whole and made it the success that it was," added Prince.
 
A large chunk of the money is coming from the Community Facility Enhancement Program grant, worth around $114,000.
 
Ground is expected to be broken in the summer of 2018.
