Ashley Okland Star Playground

Ashley Okland Star Playground

 

The Iowa Association of REALTORS® has made a goal to contribute to the memory of a fellow REALTOR® who was killed while performing her work duties and for a permanent reminder of the importance of REALTOR® safety.

Variety of Iowa recently launched a community project that will benefit children with cognitive and physical disabilities and memorialize their friend, volunteer, past board member, and former REALTOR® Ashley Okland. The Ashley Okland Star Playground will be an all-inclusive playground located within Ewing Park, on the southeast side of Des Moines.

The playground will cater to special-needs kids by featuring adapted playground equipment, but, it will be built to encourage play among children of all abilities, so it can break down barriers and foster friendships. Read more.
 
The REALTOR® Family would like to encourage all REALTORS® from Iowa, friends and associates to generous contribution to this amazing project. Our goal is for our individual REALTORS® and Local REALTOR® boards to raise $100,000 by early December. This will be coordinated by the Iowa Association of REALTOR® working with the REALTOR® Foundation of Iowa.  
 
Please make a tax-deductible donation online or write a check to the REALTOR® Foundation of Iowa and indicate in the memo Ashley Okland Star Playground Fund.
