Run for Holland donates $14K

SPRUCE PINE – Run for Holland recently gave a grant to Greenlee Primary School for the construction of a new playground.

Run for Holland’s Adam Burleson said the organization was able to donate $14,000 toward the project because this year’s race raised more money than anticipated and from being awarded 501 (c)(3) status.  

“Greenlee is redoing its playground in three phases, and Phase I is going to be all-inclusive and sensory playground equipment,” Burleson said. 

Burleson has been working with new Greenlee principal Jason Hall on the playground project. 

“We need about $30,000 more to complete the playground,” Hall said. “I never thought we get that much right out of the gate.”

Hall said construction on Phase I will begin as soon as possible.
