Foresters Financial congratulates KaBOOM! on its 3,000th playground build

  • Oct 18, 2017

(Toronto, ON, October 18, 2017) – Foresters Financial™, a Fraternal Benefit Society and a purpose driven, international financial services provider, is pleased to congratulate KaBOOM! on completing its 3,000th playground build at the THEARC: Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus in Washington, DC.

Foresters is a Founding National Partner with KaBOOM!, and by the end of 2017 we will have built 144 playgrounds in 83 cities across the United States and Canada. Foresters will proudly build its 150th playground in 2018.

"We are so proud to be a founding National Partner of KaBOOM!,” says Chris Stranahan, Foresters International Fraternal President. “Our partnership means more than a million children and their families have a safe place to play and spend quality time together."

Chris Stranahan, Knut Olson, President of North American Life Insurance and Annuity, Foresters employees and independent sales agents are taking part in this milestone build for KaBOOM!.

Over their 15-year lifespan, these playgrounds will help to strengthen the community and provide the children and their families with an opportunity to spend quality time together.

Green spaces and safe play structures where children and families can enjoy and spend time together are sparse in many high-density communities. Playing outdoors is an important part of every child’s healthy development and the creation of this new playground will allow them to play safely and be active in their community.
