Ninja Playgrounds Coming To Delaware With Help From American Ninja Warrior
Whitney Miller from Wilmington, Delaware was a contestant on seasons 13 and 14 of NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior.”
Whitney is a wife, homeschool mom of three kids, and personal trainer.
She is also Board President of Neighborhood Ninjas,a 501c3 non-profit organization that uses the sport of American Ninja Warrior to help underserved youth.
Whitney and the team at Neighborhood Ninjas aim to help children develop active lifestyles, confidence, connection, compassion and resilience.
In partnership with the Delaware Area 10 Rotary Clubs, they plan to build the first outdoor ninja warrior park in the State of Delaware!
Ninja Playgrounds will be accessible to every child regardless of physical, mental or sensory abilities.
This is a project they have been working on for two years. After a lot of hard work they can finally announce, Ninja Playgrounds Coming To Delaware.
According to their website, unlike traditional playgrounds, which are typically built with elementary aged and younger children in mind, the ninja playground would be an obstacle-based playground.
They are designed to capture the imagination of older children, teens, and adults, while simultaneously encouraging family activity, time outdoors, regular (and accessible) movement, and growth mindset through altering perceived ability levels.
Ninja Playgrounds will include parkour hurdles, along with a spider wall, quad steps, a cargo net, firefighter pole, various types of monkey bars and other equipment. The goal for opening the playground in Wilmington is spring of 2024.
You can have a small part in the project as well! By donating, you can help them achieve their goal of providing the playground to area kids.
A fundraising event will be held this weekend. The playground fundraiser event take place at Juniper by Tonic (111 W. 11th St., Wilmington) from 7 to 11 p.m., Saturday, April 22. Tickets are $25. For more info, visit tonicsns.com/rotary and neighborhoodninjas.org/event.
