WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal and the KaBOOM! design team met with Eagle Academy Public Charter School students to brainstorm ideas a concepts for a playground.
Monumental Sports and Entertainment (MSE) Foundation officials say the students will see red, white and blue this fall at their playground. The theme of the playground draws inspiration from the Capitals, Wizards and Mystics teams.
The playground will not be built until Sept. 26. Elizabeth Wodatch, executive director of MSE Foundation, said in a press release, "The Capitals have done two other playgrounds so this is the first with all three teams involved. We're hoping to have Wizards, Capitals and Mystics players out to help with the build."
Beal talked about joining the children as they drew out ideas for the school's playground. "It was a lot of fun. It was just a few years ago when it was me playing on the playground," Beal said in a press release. "My favorite part was definitely interacting with [the kids] and drawing."
KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing play to children who need it most and has built more than 2,300 playgrounds since 1996.
