Sprite Spark Parks Project to Invest $2 Million to Construct, Refurbish and Refresh More Than 150 Neighborhood Parks, Athletic Fields, Playgrounds and Basketball Courts in 2011

February 28, 2011

Sprite will invest approximately $2 million into building or revamping more than 150 basketball courts, community spaces, playgrounds and athletic fields in at least 40 American cities throughout 2011. The program tips off with a chance for people to nominate through April 8 their local basketball court for renovation. At least 21 courts will receive funding in 2011 for items such as new rims, backboards, blacktop surfaces and art installations created by local artists to inspire play.

Seven courts - with one winner coming from seven different regions across the country - will be awarded a $35,000 grant. An additional 14 locations will receive $20,000 each. In mid-summer, Sprite will give families a chance to win a refurbished playground or athletic field for their local school. People can enter their local schools by submitting the My Coke Rewards codes found on Sprite products.
