Safe Kids Day 2018 at Kaleideum Downtown is part of a nationwide initiative to bring awareness about preventable injuries, the No. 1 killer of kids in the United States. Safe Kids Northwest Piedmont, part of the Brenner Children’s Hospital Pediatric Trauma Program at Wake Forest Baptist Health, and its partners will provide hands-on education to promote the prevention of childhood injuries through learning about water, child passenger, home, fire, and pedestrian safety.
Safe Kids Day is being held in conjunction with the 11th Annual Bike Safety Day in memory of Joshua Palomares-Beckles. This family-friendly event educates children about the importance of bicycle safety and wearing a properly-fitted helmet. Bring your bike and helmet to the outdoor bicycle rodeo (10 am-Noon) with the Winston-Salem Police Department’s Downtown Bike Patrol Unit. Free helmets while supplies last!
Thanks to the generous admission sponsorship of Modern Automotive and the Pediatric Trauma Program at Brenner Children’s Hospital, Safe Kids Day 2018 is a “Pay What You Can” program at Kaleideum, which helps ensure that every child and family can attend. Please consider making a donation at any level. Eliminating cost barriers means the Museum has a greater capacity to reach more families, engage more children in playful learning, and support more caregivers.
