At SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay, our team not only supplies and installs high-quality artificial grass, but we also do what we can to help others, especially our neighbors in Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia. Recently, we had the opportunity to fulfill a very important wish from Rohan, who is part of the Make-A-Wish program from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Along with some assistance from Brock USA, Aggtrans, Bowen’s Farm Supply, USGreentech, and Rental Works of Maryland, SYNLawn Chesapeake was able to provide Rohan and his family with a soft and even artificial turf backyard, making Rohan’s wish come true.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in April of 1980. It is a nonprofit organization operating in nearly 50 countries around the world but primarily in the United States. The purpose of this nonprofit is to fulfill the wishes of children who have been diagnosed with critical illnesses.
Most of the wishes the organization receives fall into one of five categories:
“I wish to go…”
“I wish to be…”
“I wish to meet…”
“I wish to have…”
“I wish to give…”
The Make-A-Wish Foundation takes a child’s wish into consideration along with guidance from their doctor and finds the most appropriate opportunity during their treatment to fulfill their wish. In many cases, the organization works with other nonprofits, corporations, and companies to help make a child’s wish come true and provide them with a truly unforgettable experience.
Rohan’s Wish for Artificial Grass
Rohan is one of our many neighbors living in the Chesapeake Bay area. Unfortunately, this sweet little boy was sadly diagnosed with leukodystrophy. This disorder comes in a variety of forms. However, leukodystrophies of any kind are a group of rare genetic disorders. They are characterized by abnormal growth of white matter in the brain that damages the brain’s myelin sheath. This damage can affect the messages sent between the brain and body, which can cause issues with movement, speech, vision, hearing, and mental and physical development.
As a result of his leukodystrophy diagnosis, Rohan found himself unable to play in his backyard with his family. The rough dirt and uneven surface made it difficult for him to move around with his walker. So when the time came for Rohan to receive a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, he wished for artificial grass for his backyard, so he could have a soft, level surface to freely move around on and play with his father, mother, and sister.
SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay Delivered
At SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay, we understand how important it is to have beautiful and usable outdoor green spaces. After all, that’s why we are in the artificial grass business: to help provide our clients in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. with stunning and durable green spaces. We believe that everyone needs accessible green spaces to admire, unwind, and enjoy, which is why we felt called to help grant Rohan’s wish.
Along with our friends at Brock USA, our team of synthetic turf installers provided Rohan and his family with a gorgeous, green artificial grass lawn, spanning most of their backyard. This new artificial lawn is equipped with Brock USA’s SP17 XL shock pads, which provide Rohan with greater support for moving around and a safer surface if he falls. On top of this padding sits our SYNAugustine 847 turf, which features low pile-height, close-knit thatch, and ultra-realistic grass blades. Together, Rohan and his family’s new artificial grass lawn is ideal for improving his ability to move around and play outside while remaining safer.
