Carrie Underwood Builds Playground in Hometown

Carrie and hundreds of volunteers put up an entire elementary school playground in eight hours.

Carrie Underwood spent Friday (Oct. 14) painting a mural, planting green stuff, assembling a horse spring rider and a tree house barrier—and she had a couple hundred of her closest friends helping her.
Thanks to Carrie, her foundation (Checotah Animal, Town, and School Foundation) and national nonprofit KaBOOM!, an elementary school in her hometown of Checotah, Okla., has a brand-new playground.
The volunteers moved 12,000 pounds of concrete and moved 10 basketball courts worth of safety surfacing onto a 2,500-square-foot playground at Marshall Elementary—all in eight hours.
"I'm dirty. I'm sweaty. I'm nasty and have paint everywhere. But we had so much fun doing it," Carrie told Tulsa, Okla.'s KOTV.
