Who Is Swinging?
Our celebrity swing-shifters are all scheduled and ready to go—we are so excited about this amazing group of people donating their time and energy to support the Parks Foundation! You’ll find the list of who is swinging where and when below. Please come out to the sites to cheer them on, and donate in support by clicking www.tinyurl.com/swingmore24 and donating as little as $10 or as much as you want! Leave a note in “additional questions” to let us know which participant your donation supports! We ALL win when you donate to support parks—but we’ll ALSO have special prizes for the participants who garner the most support.
