ABOUT STAR: STAR includes 14 lighted soccer fields and support facilities that cost $10 million to build. STAR participants may not realize it, but while they’re having fun and getting exercise, they’re contributing to a great cause. Proceeds from STAR support the operation and maintenance of Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first ultra-accessible family fun park specifically designed for individuals with special needs. The non-profit park and STAR were created through the vision and leadership of the Gordon Hartman Family Foundation.
