CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - On Saturday May 11, The Wyoming Medical Center will partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming to bring back their annual Spring Into Safety event. The event, which used to be called Safe Kids Day, has been put on by the Hospital for almost 30 years after beginning in 1994.

The event will see 20 different local businesses attend and set up booths in the Boys and Girls Club. This event is meant to teach kids how to be safe while being active. They will also be providing free life jackets and bike helmets to families who attend.

“It’s important to get the community out to this event so that we are keeping our kids safe, so they understand water safety, so they understand the importance of wearing their bike helmets when they are on their bikes, on skateboards, on scooters, any of that. We’re trying to prevent traumatic injury in our youth that could affect them for the rest of their lives,” said Heather McDonald who is an RN Trauma Outreach Coordinator with the Wyoming Medical Center.

The event will begin at 10:00am Saturday May 14 in the Casper Boys and Girls Club and end at noon on the same day. It will also be free for families to attend.
