This presentation details a grassroots initiative led by nine mothers who raised more than $100,000 in four months by partnering with the City of Leduc, community residents, and the Let Them Be Kids initiative. The initiative resulted in more than 200 residents building a much-needed park space in the community in June 2009. The 'Kool Moms', using the park space as a tool, were able to engage Leduc as a whole, creating a lifelong legacy and establishing a community.
