Meet JoJo

JoJo (Josiah) Hoerter didn’t make it to his third birthday or to see his wish granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation for a playground in his backyard to play with his siblings. This very loved little boy passed away from complications due to a neurological and developmental disorder that made him unable to talk or walk. JoJo’s Playground was a dream and a promise from JoJo’s parents. A dream for a playground where all children could play together. After four years of fundraising, a couple of bumps, and a pandemic, the largest all-inclusive playground in Central Wisconsin opened in 2020!
