Bicycle Safety Rodeo and Safe Kids Day
St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center hosted its annual Bicycle Safety Rodeo and Safe Kids Day on Saturday, May 9, 2015. The purpose of the event is to provide children ages 3-12 and their families with an opportunity to learn about safety and prevention while participating in sports and other recreational activities.
The day included bicycle inspections will be conducted by the Economy Bike Shop. Bicycle tires, frames,handlebars, chain guards, and reflectors are checked, and parents received a check-list for each bike indicating if anything needs to be repaired. Children were then given a free bike helmet, which was fitted by one of the St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center’s therapists. They rode a bicycle safety course, which was organized and run by the Lawrence Township Police Department, where they llustrated knowledge of traffic signals, hand signals, parked cars, and how to avoid unexpected obstacles.
There were water safety programs and other activities geared towards water safety. St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center gave away a limited number of Personal Flotation Devices for children up to 90 pounds.
Many organizations participated with interactive games and safety exhibits. The Trenton Thunder mascot, Boomer, was also at the event.
