20 Stitches: My six year-old’s road to recovery
Hundreds of communities joined us to celebrate this national awareness week developed to bring attention to predictable and preventable injuries in children.
Parachute Safe Kids Week 2017 took place June 5th – June 11th in communities across Canada, with a focus on promoting safe and active transportation: Walk, Bike Wheel, which includes walking, cycling, skateboarding, scootering and other wheeled activities.
While addressing active transportation safety is complex, there are a few easy steps we can all take to keep children, and ourselves safe. While the official Parachute Safe Kids Week 2017 is over, feel free to explore the information on this page.
Check out community events that may be taking place near you, and use our resources to plan your own event and activities to promote safe and active transportation.
Take a selfie with the pledge card to show your commitment to being an #everydaysuperhero promoting safe and active transportation, and share it on social media. Be sure to use the hashtag #everydaysuperhero
