Katie Durkin Memorial Playground at Butterfly Athletic Park

Katie Durkin Memorial Playground at Butterfly Athletic Park

3 Members who work for Union Concrete volunteered their time on Friday April 29th to work on a beautiful (now open) Athletic Park at Wales school, that was built in the honor of Katie Durkun, a 9 year old girl killed in a car accident in Wales. 

Butterfly Athletic Park is built in honor of Katie Durkin, a 9 year old little girl killed in a car accident in Wales. The equipment, material and labor were all donation. This park is built at Wales Primary School for all the local children to use. Randy Kensy, Terry Smith and Marc Smith were there from 1pm till 9pm. 

 

Wales Primary is in Erie County NY.

Thebutterflyfoundation.net states "They immediately began brainstorming with friends about a program that would honor Katie’s short but beautiful life in ways that would positively sustain her legacy for years to come. A concept emerged surrounding her friends’ description of “Katie” as being “Kind And Thoughtful IEverything.” That acronym was augmented by Katie’s recent hand-drawn artwork of a butterfly. Combined, the two elements serve as a tender yet powerful inspirational symbol for Katie’s life and legacy."

Foundation's goal is to raise $425,000 and are extremely close. To donate please visit
