We have been lucky enough to work with Sophie and Madigan's playground for the last 5 years or so. They are an incredible organization and group of people. It is amazing what they are doing for our community after suffering from such a tragedy. Two of my daughters and my husband have run with them locally, which they loved. Our entire family loved Kidstock both years that it was held. We are lucky enough to now consider the family our friends. We help to honor Sophie and Madigan every year at their birthdays by doing acts of kindness as a family. We cannot wait for the playground to open!

My kids and I have been fortunate to participate in several Sophie and Madigan’s Playground events! My favorite have been the garden parties we attended at Surreybrooke! So much fun dancing with the kids and playing hide and go seek in the stunning gardens. We loved the tea party we attended in Brunswick when they were little. I got much of my holiday shopping started over the years at Pink Friday in downtown Frederick. Of course Kidstock was just over-the-top AMAZING! We have waited in line sharing stories at restaurant spirit nights and dried our eyes while sharing our love for the girls and our support for their beautiful family doing random acts of kindness in the girls honor. The legacy of love and connection has brought so much to my family over the years.

Our family has supported Sophie and Madigan's Playground since day one. To have an all-inclusive playground and park where families can make memories is so important to a community.
This nonprofit will go above and beyond to make this happen.

This is a wonderful organization centered around creating opportunities for families to play, learn, and create memories. From running a compassionate kids club helping kids volunteer to holding concerts at the children’s hospital, Sophie and Madigan's Playground is constantly looking for chances to serve the community. It is currently in the final stages of creating the first all inclusive destination playground in Frederick. I am honored to serve on the board of directors since it started.

This nonprofit is one of a kind, bringing our community together for the purpose of laughter, creating memories with loved ones and teaching children the magic of play. Their destination playground will honor the lives of their sweet girls, Sophie and Madigan, who lived life to the fullest. I've never seen a group of people more dedicated to a cause then those behind Sophie and Madigan's Playground. Our family has attended several events to support them and will continue to do so, we walked away having another amazing memory together as a family.

This wonderful nonprofit , honoring the lives of Sophie and Madigan Lillard, strives to provide opportunities for families to play, learn and create precious memories. The outpouring of community support after the loss of Sophie and Madigan was overwhelming. Their parents realized how important our family memories are. They created a nonprofit to develop a playground where families would have the opportunity to play together and create those memories. The equipment is “all inclusive” so that every child and every family will have the same opportunity. I have helped support the organization by helping with some of the very creative activities and being an ambassador for public support.

This organization has touched my heart, my family and many friends but more importantly they have taken an unimaginable tragedy and turned it into an amazing opportunity for others. The memories, legacy and spirit of Sophie and Madigan will touch others forever. All will be welcome, included and embraced by the programs, events and places named and held in their memory. The reminder to make memories, cherish the moments and love and welcome all is a lesson well taught by the innocence of children.

This non-profit was started in the memory of Sophie and Madigan Lillard. Their parents, friends and community members have helped to create an organization that offers family events to our community to help build memories for families. The strength shown by Chrissi and Jack to give back to the community and create a destination park is amazing. Sophie and Madigan will live on forever in the memories of moments created at the park and other events hosted.

Sophie and Madigan’s Playground is awesome for many reasons! Not only are they building an amazing and fully inclusive destination playground in Frederick, but also because I can volunteer with my young kids and have them spend time to give back and make our community a better place!

Sophie & Madigan’s Playground has worked tirelessly over the last 6 year to build a community where families are mindful of the little things. They strive to create opportunities for kids and their families to Play Learn and Create together in ways that honor sweet Sophie and Madigan. The building of Phase 1 of the playground is just around the corner and I could not be more excited for how far we’ve come!

Sophie and Madigan's Playground is bringing fun family events to Frederick, Maryland in memory of Sophie and Madigan, sisters who died at ages 6 and 3. This nonprofit offers many volunteer opportunities through their summer music festival Kidstock, a Butterfly Gala, and an interactive Play Trail. Sophie and Madigan's Playground also helps other organizations such as card writing for patients at Children's Hospital. Soon, Sophie and Madigan's Playground will build a memorial park which will draw tourism to Frederick and feature unique elements in to reflect the personalities of Sophie and Madigan such as a pirate ship and butterfly garden. A running group meets weekly to exercise in honor of Sophie and Madigan. This nonprofit has also joined Frederick together as a community to remember Sophie and Madigan and encourage family togetherness and this will only increase when the park is built.
