Now I Can provides physical therapy for children with severe physical disorders; a physical wellness group volunteered to build them a therapeutic playground.
"Four-year-old Kiya Banzhaf had been eyeing the swing the whole afternoon.
"As soon as the blue ribbon fell, signifying the playground was open for business, she turned to her mother and asked if she could ride it.
"For mother Kristen Banzhaf, it was a relief to say yes. Kiya, like a lot of the other kids who undergo physical therapy at the Provo-based Now I Can Foundation, has serious physical disabilities as a result of being born with cerebral palsy. She has trouble holding herself upright, so she can't play on most swings."--Daphne Chen, the Deseret News
