Update #6

Here is the VERY latest... it has been a long time since I have updated our backers but wanted to provide an update of where things are at and the timing of the final unveiling of the plaque in Lakeland Hills Park.

After working with designers at the City of Auburn, we arrived at the attached design and text which has been approved by the Huffman Family. This will highlight the naming of the play structure at the park in memory of Avery Huffman. I wanted this group to be able to see it first, even before the public unveiling because it is YOU that made it happen. Thank you for your incredible support.

On April 20th, 2019, at Lakeland Hills Park at approximately 11:00 am we will unveil the final result with the help of Auburn Parks & Recreation. You are all invited to attend.

April 20th
Lakeland Hills Park
1401 Evergreen Way SE
Auburn, WA 98092

Earlier that morning, there will be a gathering of people that will finish beautifying the area with pavers, flowers, and plants. You are welcome to participate in this as well, but mostly I wanted to invite those who contributed and saw this through an opportunity to see it unveiled along with the Huffman Family for the first time. Thanks for your incredible support of this project and hope to see many of you on April 20th.

Update #5

Happy Holidays to the "Climb Like Avery" backers. I want to update you on the current status of the project you helped fund and support.

We just recently turned in all of the funds raised to the Auburn Parks and they completed the design of what is going to be a wonderful plaque that will notate the play structure at Lakeland Hills Park, as "Avery's Playground."

In concert with the Huffman family, we worked through the text and final sign off on the design in the last week. I can tell you, those who knew Avery, pink and green were two of her favorite colors, and these will be represented strongly in the final product. I will share a photo of the completed design soon.

Thank you so much for giving to this product and making this happen. It honestly would not have happened without your amazing support and that means so much to the Huffman family. Auburn Parks expects about a 4-6 week time frame for the completed project and I would expect some additional time needed to install. I will continue to keep you updated.

Thanks again for all you have done and have a blessed holiday season.

Update #4

To our awesome supporters: I met with Auburn Parks today and we have a plan in place for the signage at the Lakeland Hills Park play structure. The funds we raised were enough to cover the costs to see this through. I will be sending a check to Auburn Parks for $2,551 (the total amount raised less Fundly.com fees) and we will get started on the design finalization. The Huffman family will help the text and photos and the City of Auburn will help us with the design. I will share proofs as soon as we have something. You have been amazing supporters. Thank you for all you have done to see this project get started and honor Avery Huffman in the same play structure she enjoyed so much... #AveryStrong

Update #3

Although the campaign has wrapped up and slightly short of our financial target, this project will still move forward. I want to thank all of the many, many people who helped support this effort. Your support is making this a reality. I am working with Auburn Parks to discuss next steps, design, and logistics to finalize the project that wouldn't have happened without the incredible support from so many, local and far away. Thank you so much. I don't have anything more specific to announce yet, but more information will be coming. As backers of this project, you will be the first to hear about and see the signage for this special play area, soon to be named after Avery Huffman. THANK YOU ALL!! #AveryStrong

Update #2

Thank you so much for all of the support, especially the push of funding coming in in the recent days. Simply amazing and so much appreciated. I wanted to tell the group that I am meeting with Auburn Parks shortly to give them an update on where we are at. At this point, I will get final pricing on what they need to see this to completion. They have been a tremendous partner and I look forward to updating the group on the next steps as we close in on our funding goal. Thank you so much for your incredible support of the Climb Like Avery project!
