Freedom Park Concert Fundraiser held Saturday


Plymouth, Ind. Folks in Plymouth spent a relaxing Saturday afternoon in the shade listening to music, all to benefit a very worthy cause.

Folks gathered at the amphitheater to listen to several bands after their 5K race earlier Saturday morning and it's all for a good cause.

The event was the first fundraising event held by the Freedom Park Committee. Their goal is to build an all-inclusive playground designed to all children with disabilities.

According to the 2010 Census, of the 47,000 people living in Marshall County, 17 percent over the age of five and seven percent under the age of five have a disability.

But despite the numbers right now there are no parks in Plymouth where they can play side-by-side with their peers, disabled or not.

"It's a need in this community,” says Marla Murasko the co-chair of Freedom Park. “I know my son is going to enjoy it. I know there is going to be a lot of kids, a lot of families who are going to enjoy it. It’s going to bring so much traffic to the community. Plymouth is going to be the place where they're going to want to be."
