A nonprofit called Hopscotch Detroit plans on bringing together people from all over Detroit today to create the world's largest hopscotch course. In a city that's had its share of hard hits in the past couple of decades, the organization hopes that this will bring people together in the spirit of fun and community.
Also planned are several large chalkboard murals, and all the chalk has been donated by a local office supply company.
Ajooni Sethi, one of the organizers, is optimistic about the event's turnout.
“Positive, exciting, and inspiring things are brewing and alive in Detroit,” Sethi says. “We all share common ground. Sometimes we just need to draw on it to realize the fact."
