Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. – The PTO at Ocean Palms Elementary School,
in collaboration with Flagler Health+, is making strides toward a goal
of $150,000 for a new play structure at the school that will replace the
current 15-year-old playground. Flagler Health+ donated $10,000 toward
the project as the school’s flagship sponsor and was especially
drawn to the school’s playground initiative because of the unique
ADA compliant components that are set to be included in the project—pieces
such as the “otter float,” which allows for full wheelchair
access on part of the play structure.
The check was presented by Dr. Mark Moon, a primary care physician with
Flagler Health+ currently taking care of patients in the Nocatee community.
Dr. Moon also provides a concierge medicine practice that will be located
in the future Flagler Health+ Village at Nocatee.
“Flagler Health+ is proud to be a part of the Nocatee community.
We are especially pleased to sponsor Ocean Palms Elementary’s playground
project that will benefit children of all ages and abilities,” Moon
Said. “Everything we do supports a vision to advance physical, social
and economic health for the communities we serve.”
The playground, which provides much-needed mental breaks, stress reduction
and important physical exercise for students, is a big part of the children’s
school day and also aligns with the youth behavioral health initiatives
that Flagler Health+ has taken in the community through efforts like their
B.R.A.V.E. (Be Resilient and Voice Emotions) program, which launched in
September of last year.
Ocean Palms Elementary School’s PTO is honored to work with Flagler
Health+ on this exciting project for the students. Find out how you can
