A Day For Jarrett

This is a dedicated group of local citizens trying to make a difference for the children in our community with special needs. Last year they did an event called "A Day For Jarrett", in honor of Jarrett Frush. Jarrett Frush is an eight year old boy with severe cerebral palsy. The event last year had a police escorted motorcycle ride, vendors, a carnival and clowns for all the families to enjoy. The money raised was for Cerebral Palsy of Virginia located in Virginia Beach.

This year the groups desire is to build an all inclusive playground for the children in the Gloucester and surrounding communities, siting that these types of playgrounds are few and far between but are becoming a much needed asset to all communities. The playground design is for children with different abilities and they can learn, play and enjoy the interaction with others. It will be 100% wheelchair accessible.

This Year's Event

This year's event is being held on September 27th, at the Soccer Fields behind EVB and Damon & Co, Route 17, Gloucester, VA.

The event starts at 11:00 AM and will go until 7:00 PM.

There will be a "Ride with the guys II" with the guys from Rockers Originals at 8:00 AM to kick off the event and will have a police escort. To sign up to ride with this group, please go to Damon & Co.
