Back in 2020, a passionate group of young adults approached Moya Financial with an incredible vision: to breathe new life into Slovenski Park’s sports facilities. Today, we’re thrilled to share a sneak peek at the amazing progress made possible by their dedication and the $19,000 grant provided by Moya Financial! In this inspiring story of community spirit and youth initiative, these individuals came together with a shared vision to restore and uplift Slovenski Park. What started as a humble effort to clean and give back to the park has transformed into a remarkable project to revitalize the sports facilities.
Motivated by their deep love for the park and their desire to create a welcoming space for all, this group of young adults took the first steps towards repairing and improving the neglected areas and equipment. They worked tirelessly, from picking weeds and filling cracks in concrete to painting basketball and tennis lines, showcasing their unwavering dedication to breathe new life into the park.
Despite their progress, significant challenges remained. Broken backboards and rims with ripped nets, bent tennis posts, and a leaning fence served as reminders of the obstacles that prevented people from fully enjoying the facilities. Recognizing the pressing need to restore the park to its former glory, the group organized a revitalization event to address these issues.
As a non-profit organization, Slovenski Park faced financial limitations, leaving little room for improvement or repairs. The younger generation, who deeply understand the park’s importance as a gathering place for sports and community connection, had limited influence over annual budget allocations. However, driven by their shared love for sports and their commitment to creating a brighter future for the community, they were determined to repair and enhance the worn-out sports facilities.
Guided by their belief in the power of sports to unite and uplift communities, this determined group embarked on an ambitious mission to rally support and secure the necessary funds for the revitalization project. They recognized that revitalizing the sports facilities would not only enhance the park’s appeal but also provide a safe and inviting space for people of all ages to come together and create lasting memories. Construction and renovation are well underway, guided by our shared commitment to create an inclusive, rejuvenated sports hub.
As the warm sun of summer draws near, so does the completion of this incredible transformation. We are excited to announce that the grand unveiling of Slovenski Park’s revitalized sports facilities is just around the corner! Stay tuned for the official date, as we can’t wait to celebrate this momentous occasion together with you.
None of this would have been possible without the unwavering support and dedication of Lucas Grdadolnik, Aaron Grdadolnik, Thomas Grdadolnik, Dylan Zunic, Rowan Zunic, Ethan Ryall, Evan Ryall, Matthew Kajin, Colby Bellemore, and Cameron Bellemore. Their commitment and hard work have brought us to this exciting stage of the project.
The revitalization of Slovenski Park’s sports facilities stands as a testament to the remarkable impact that a group of determined individuals can make when they come together for a shared cause. It showcases the strength of community dedication, the power of youth initiative, and the boundless possibilities that unfold when passion and purpose intertwine.
