Here at Macie Grace Foundation, we are driven by a single goal; to Make Every Day A Safe Day. We are committed to increasing awareness of playground safety, necessary to create and maintain a happy, fun and safe outdoor environment in an effort to prevent injury or death.
Why We Started the Macie Grace Foundation
On October 19, 2018, our spunky little firecracker, Macie Grace, tragically lost her life while playing on the playground at her favorite place, her preschool. Macie was on a new tire swing when it fell over with her and 2 other children on it. It was later learned that the tire swing structure wasn't installed according to licencing requirements. We also found out that there was no safety ground covering, just grass.
Her family and friends have come together to create the Macie Grace Foundation to bring awareness of playground safety to everyone. From backyard playgrounds to cities and schools, we want to help make sure that playgrounds are created and maintained to the highest standards.
