Safe Kids Week 2017

Now in its 21st year, Parachute Safe Kids Week is an annual national awareness week developed to bring attention to predictable and preventable injuries in children. Taking place June 5 – 11, 2017, this year will focus on one of the top injury issues affecting children: active transportation injuries - including pedestrian, cycling, skateboarding/long boarding, and scootering.

Many Canadians are surprised to learn that preventable injuries kill more children every year than any other disease, and worst of all 1 child dies every 9 hours.

Stay tuned on how you can take part in this year’s Parachute Safe Kids Week!
