After over two years of fundraising and planning, the Brighton Kiwanis Club, and their Brighton Aktion Club were able to add a Sway-Fun Inclusive Glider to the Brighton Kiwanis Playground located behind Town Hall in the town of Brighton. This glider represents one of the first pieces of truly inclusive playground equipment in a public park in Monroe County, and allows wheelchair-bound children and able children to play together.

The Brighton Aktion Club first came up with the idea for a piece of inclusive playground equipment, and then held a year-long fundraiser selling over $2,000 worth of hand-crafted magnets. The Brighton High School Key Club and the University of Rochester Circle K service clubs (along with Brighton Kiwanis members) aided the Aktion Club in this endeavor.

Additionally, Brighton Kiwanis created awareness for the glider and raised additional funds through their Jewels of Jamaica Raffle and at other events. Overall, many Kiwanians and members of Aktion Club and our other service leadership programs worked very hard to conceive, fund, and follow through on this project.
