"The Center for Courageous Kids is a very special organization.  This is a place where children and their families can escape the pain and pressures that come with having a serious illness, and can simply be free to enjoy a fun camp experience," said Brad Pittam, general manager, LTR Products.  "At LTR Products, we want to help ensure that all of the children get to fully enjoy and experience the camp.  That is why we are so pleased that Vigoro Premium Rubber Mulch can be used to create a ramp that is safe and accessible for all."

LTR Products has donated 2.2 tons of black Vigoro Premium Rubber Mulch buffings to construct the ramp.  An innovative alternative to traditional wood mulch for landscaping and playground surfacing, Vigoro Premium Rubber Mulch is wheelchair-accessible surface.  Additionally, rubber mulch is non-allergenic, non-toxic and harmless to plants, pets and children.  It is also clean, minimizes airborne dust and particles, and does not splinter like wood mulch.  The rubber mulch will remain bright and plush for at least 12 years, saving the center the annual cost of replacing wood mulch.  

The Center for Courageous Kids is a world-class medical camping facility that provides a cost-free, safe, and fun camping experience for seriously ill and disabled children and their families.
