Trina is one of many people helping set up the Gottschall Autism center. She was also instrumental in helping raise money to set up a local playground for children with disabilities. Regarding her work on the playground, here is an excerpt from the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Quest magazine:
. . . Her friend Trina Bigham, whose son Brennan has cerebral palsy, had similar concerns. Together, they raised a few hundred dollars from bake sales and thought they might come up with enough money to buy a few accessible playground pieces. Then they saw an article about Jonathan's Dream and made the three-hour drive to check it out.
"We got there and Patrick was amazed," Barry recalls. "He said, 'I don't need you, Mom.' That's when you know you've done a successful job."
They set their sights a little higher, and ultimately raised $210,000. Everybody's Playground opened in August.
All three playground builders seem a little stunned by what they've accomplished, but they say that anyone with drive and energy can do it.
