Super Cooper Memorial Playground Is Open
By now, you've heard about "Super Cooper Saves the Day." Super Cooper was started in honor of Cooper Busch, he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia when he was only four years old. Cooper lost his battle on Sunday, May 6th, 2018.
His mom, Tara, and the rest of the family have been keeping his memory alive by giving back to the community. One of their dreams was to build the Super Cooper Memorial Playground at the Chenango Bridge Civic Park on River Road in Chenango Bridge.
After two years of prayers, hard work, and tireless effort from volunteers, their dream is now a reality. The Super Cooper Memorial Playground officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday afternoon, August 7th.
The park and the playground is open to the public and it looks like it'll be a very popular place for years to come. I live only a half a mile away from the park and I noticed that many kids and their families were enjoying the new facility over the weekend.
Super Cooper wants to "save the day" for others and they continue to give hope to those that feel like they are in a hopeless situation. Cooper was a bright light in a dark world and his light continues to shine now.
You can go here to see the ribbon-cutting ceremony from Friday.
