Duluth Parents Promote Healthy Playgrounds

Fundraiser for School Support on Earth Day

DULUTH, Minn. – A group of concerned parents has been working together to create what they believe is the best environment for their children on the school playground.

This weekend they’re hosting a fundraiser to help with the process of removal and replacement.

It’s taking place on Saturday, April 22 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at Skyline Lodge, 4894 Miller Trunk Highway.
