Mixing Passion with Purpose
Two years ago, a 10 year old boy, Riley Bigger, made a request of the Cadillac City Council. He asked what it would take for the City to install a wheelchair accessible swing at the playground on the Keith McKellop Walkway.
Riley came up with the idea when he was attending a church conference and saw parents lift children from their wheelchairs into swings. When he returned to Cadillac he was determined to see a type of swing added to the city park that is wheelchair accessible next to the ADA compliant playground. The City of Cadillac thought it was a good idea too, and so Riley began to fundraise for his project.
