May 14th I posted THIS. I saw the article on Reddit and wanted to add the update on this remarkable man.
Reddit brought in about $11,000 in donations from all over the world in 12 hours once the story hit front page in May. From my understanding, GameTime matched donations for the playground. There have been countless volunteers and donations of services/goods from millings, to lime for the track, trucking, landscaping, mowing, etc. to make this park possible.
