Public Service Campaigns
Since 2000, the Academy’s annual volunteer build project—the award-winning Safe and Accessible Playground building program in partnership with KaBOOM!—has provided an opportunity to visibly support playground safety and give something back to the communities we serve by helping with the construction of a safe and wheelchair-accessible play structure for children.
The upcoming 2016 playground build in Orlando—the city where the Academy first kicked off the playground build program in 2000—will be the AAOS’s 17th playground build.
Interested in helping make a dream playground possible for an Orlando, Fla., community in 2016?

Movement is OUR Mission Challenge:
Help Support a Safe and Accessible Playground Build in Orlando, Fla.
Participate in this challenge, in the spirit of play, and unity among specialty societies helping communities in need.
The specialty society securing the most member donations will be recognized on playground build promotional materials, and on Build Day. A weekly update on the progress of this challenge would be made publicly available on www.aaos.org/playground.
Make sure your specialty society is represented! Individual donors who contribute $1,000 or more will be recognized on the playground build video, on the playground build website, Build Day t-shirts and signage, etc.
