Ok, here is your friendly reminder to vote for your favorite park!!! Remember when I wrote that Coca-Cola’s Live Positively campaign is giving away FOUR grants to lucky parks all across the country? The program is still going on, and your parks need your votes!
Running on the beach in front of Fort Maurepas Park.
empower others to get involved. Send emails, letters and tweets to community leaders, park groups, local celebrities and more telling them about the campaign and why your park is so special. Print out the flyer found in the toolkit and post it all over your park. Ask park-goers to use their smartphones to cast a vote on the spot!
The park with the most votes will win a $100,000 recreation grant from the Coca-Cola
Live Positively initiative and the coveted title of “America’s Favorite Park.” What’s even better is that more than one park will win! Second- and third-place parks will receive $50,000 and $25,000 grants, respectively, and one lucky park will be chosen, at random, from the remaining top 25 spots on the leader board to win a $15,000 grant.
