Aeroflow donates to inclusive playground

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Aeroflow Healthcare has donated $10,000 to help make a playground at Lake Tomahawk Park in Black Mountain, N.C., inclusive to children with physical disabilities. Aeroflow partnered with Noah Lewkowicz, a local Eagle Scout and high school junior, on the project. “Noah began his Eagle Scout project two years ago, just a few years prior to a close family friend being in a near-fatal crash, which left him unable to walk,” said Wendy Lewkowicz, Noah’s mother. “The community rallied behind Noah to raise a few thousand dollars but was left with a gap of $10,000 to meet necessary ADA requirements. That’s when Aeroflow swooped in to offer their support.” The project entailed replacing mulch with a poured surface, creating ADA-approved concrete ramps for entry, and adding a hardback swing. The playground re-opened the weekend of Nov. 20.
