According to Safe Kids USA, injury is the leading cause of death in children ages one to 14 in Wisconsin and the United States. The event will showcase Kohl’s Cares: The Great Safety Adventure, a mobile health education unit geared toward reducing the number of Wisconsin children who are injured at home.
The event will introduce local families to Rover, the Home Safety Hound, and his Safety Rangers as they explore a retrofitted semitrailer designed to represent a 1,200-square-foot home. This tour is dedicated to educating parents and children about the five leading safety risks found inside and outside the home. Kohl’s Cares is funding the effort through a $725,000 donation to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
The tour will provide life-saving information about home safety for school-age children in kindergarten through fourth grade.
Nelson will be greeting fans and signing autographs from 4 – 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Presented by Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, the 17-week Kohl’s Cares: The Great Safety Adventure tour will make more than 50 stops throughout Wisconsin in 2012. This event is free and open to the public.
