Crowdfunding effort launched to renovate Grand Rapids park basketball court
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The basketball court at Wilcox Park in Grand Rapids could get a needed renovation with a new crowdfunding campaign.
The campaign is being offered on the Michigan-based crowdfunding website Patronicity. To contribute, click here.
The campaign has a goal of $12,500 by Nov. 10. As of Monday, the project had already raised more than $3,000. If the goal is met, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation will double the contribution.
The basketball court will be named for Mike Sanders, a local man who loved basketball and the community. Sanders died last year from cancer.
The renovation will include repairing the existing asphalt, applying a new acrylic coating system and installing new backboards.
