KIwanis Safe and Healthy Kids Campaign for Safe Home, Safe Play, Bicycle Safety & Water Safety
The important thing to remember about preventable injuries is that they are preventable.
The Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation Safe and Healthy Kids program is dedicated to preventing injuries in children, the number one killer of kids in the United States. Around the world, a child dies from an unintentional injury every 30 seconds. And millions of children are injured in ways that can affect them for a lifetime.
When a child dies or is seriously injured the lives of families and entire communities are changed forever. But these tragedies don't have to happen. The important thing to remember about preventable injuries is that they are preventable. They often occur in predictable ways and can be completely avoided with the right education, awareness and planning
Our Kiwanis Safe and Healthy Kids program is dedicated to the creation, support, and promotion of projects throughout Ohio with a focus on safety, good health, and education of young children. We support projects that help to reduce injuries from motor vehicles, sports, bicycles, drownings, falls, burns, poisonings and more.
Losing one child is one too many, and we don't want any parent to have to endure the loss of a child. That's why we're calling on everyone to come together, to raise awareness and to get involved so we can ensure that all children have the chance to grow up healthy and safe, and do all the great things kids were meant to do.
Members of the Ohio Kiwanis Family, Kiwanis Clubs, supportive community members, and organizations are being asked to support this initiative through the various promotional projects the Foundation sponsors. The Foundation is pleased to present this opportunity to better the lives of the young children of Ohio.
