IB Members, ROI2015 Attendees Make a Difference for Denver Parks & Rec

329B5554While at this year’s #ROI2015 Conference, members of The Injury Board recently joined ROI2015 conference attendees and their guests in Denver to help restore and rejuvenate a local neighborhood park.

As part of the community outreach component of the ROI Conference, approx. 50 volunteers from across the country teamed up with Denver Parks and Recreation to assist in a little springtime fix-up. On May 2, volunteers traveled to Martinez Park, a community park located in the Villa Park neighborhood in West Denver.

329B5616During the event, volunteers were divided into groups that helped plant 18 new trees throughout the park, picked up debris throughout the park and in the stream next to the park, and also put a fresh coat of paint on everything painted emerald green — benches and picnic tables, the baseball diamond backstop, park signs, playground equipment, the bridge walkway of the river, railings, trash cans and much more.

At the end of the day, the ROI2015 volunteers were able to complete approx. two weeks’ worth of work in just under two hours.

This is just another example of what sets them apart from the pack — and why they are difference makers in their own local communities.”
