SAN ANTONIO – Safe Kids Day led by University Health System is coming up this weekend!
Safe Kids Day helps raise awareness and provides education about protecting children from serious injuries due to car crashes, fires, drowning, crossing the street, poisoning and more.
The Safe Kids Day event is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lowe’s on 3302 Goliad Road and free to the public.
The fun and educational event for families will offer live music, 30 booths, up-close and personal exhibits, a booster seat giveaway and hands-on activities to help families take action to protect children.
“Unfortunately unintentional injuries are the leading reason that kids visit us at the hospital,” said Jennifer Northway, director of adult & pediatric injury at University Health System.
The Safe Kids Day event also offers a bike safety challenge course, booster seat giveaway, FedEx’s race car photo opportunity, Harley Davidson’s motorcycle simulator, Teddy Bear Clinic and a free heart screen for student-athletes.
