Indianapolis Colts Build Playground at Rachel Glick Courage Center Playspace

: Over 150 volunteers from the Indianapolis Colts, Lucas Oil Products, Ingredion Incorporated, Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance and Children’s Bureau, Inc. joined Rebuilding Together and Sinclair Recreation to build a new, safe playground and beautify the grounds at the Rachel Glick Courage Center.





Indianapolis- Tuesday, September 23, 2014 marked the seventh consecutive year the Indianapolis Colts and their partners have built a playground in Central Indiana. It was also the largest playground build to date by the team. Previously, the Center did not have a playground or any playground equipment. On Tuesday, the playground was constructed in less than eight hours and included a basketball court, outdoor classroom and fitness equipment in addition to traditional playground equipment. Volunteers also beautified the Courage Center grounds by landscaping, painting and weeding.

The goal of this build was to create a safe outdoor space that will dramatically improve the 24 Rachel Glick Courage Center children's experiences/interactions and promote recovery. The new playground will provide residents and neighborhood children with a great recreational space.

Colts players who were on hand to help with the event included OLB Daniel Adongo, OLB Erik Walden, FS Sergio Brown, OLB Jon Newsome, NT Zach Kerr, LB Josh McNary, OLB Chris Carter, S Colt Anderson, ILB Henoc Muamba, LS Matt Overton and QB Dominique Davis. Colts cheerleaders assisted in the project by leading group stretching and warm-ups prior to the build. Students from the Courage Center were also involved by decorating tiles to be displayed in the building. 

This project is part of the Colts ongoing efforts to encourage young people to be active at least 60 minutes each day through the NFL's PLAY60 Campaign. This event was also a part of the Colts "Community Tuesday" effort, which is a weekly initiative geared towards leaving a positive impact in the Indianapolis community.

The 2014 Playground Build was made possible in part by Republic Services. Additional in-kind donors for this year's playground project include: Coca-Cola, McDonald's and Penn Station East Coast Subs.
