Safe Kids Day at the Drive, is an annual event aimed at spreading the message of safety in the upstate and celebrating our Safety Patrols and Safety Heroes.

This year we honored our Safety Heroes across Greenville, Oconee, and Pickens County. The safety heroes included our Child Passenger Safety Techs, Safe Sleep Educators, Safety Patrols and their leaders, Coalition members and more!

Our presenting sponsor, the Greenville Drive knows how important it is to keep our children safe.

In April (2019) families enjoyed injury prevention games and learned about pedestrian safety, water safety, teen driving safety, and more! Children and families got to enjoy the beautiful day with fantastic vendors, fun activities, and a great baseball game! Plus, over 300 children received properly fitted helmets!

See below for pictures from the fun event and our special awardees!
