      5k planned to raise money for playground in memory of Sandy Hook victim

      James Mattioli

      A 5k is planned to raise money for a playground that will be built in memory of Sandy Hook victim James Mattioli.

      James was one of the 20 children killed during the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in December of 2012. Six adults were also killed.

      The town of Milford in Connecticut was selected as the recipient of a "The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play" playground. One playground is being built in memory of each of the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook shootings.

      The "Sandy Ground 5k in Memory of James Mattioli" will be held on Saturday, March 22 in Milford, CT.

      James' grandparents live in Sherrill, NY.
