BEREA, OH (WOIO) -  The Cleveland Browns, United Way of Greater Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic and organizers from KaBOOM!, will host a Design Day for children at the Karamu House on Wednesday, August 11th.

Former Browns running back Kevin Mack will help kick off the event as children from the Karamu House will put crayon to paper and draw their dream playgrounds, which will ultimately become a reality. Elements from the children's drawings will be incorporated into the final design for the new community playground to be built on October 19th at the Karamu House.

Design Day will also be the first meeting of the playground planning committee that will work for the next nine weeks to plan and prepare for the construction of the new playground. The day will officially begin when representatives from each organization make the announcement to the children.

The KaBOOM! project at Karamu House is part of the Cleveland Browns Play 60 movement which encourages kids to get 60-minutes of activity a day. The Cleveland Browns Play 60 program is in association with Cleveland Clinic, Medical Mutual of Ohio and the American Dairy Association Mideast and Fuel Up to Play 60.

WHEN: Wednesday, August 11, 2010 from 4:00 - 4:30 p.m.
