When a child dies or is seriously injured, the lives of families and entire communities are changed forever. But these tragedies don’t have to happen. The important thing to remember about preventable injuries is that they are preventable. They often occur in predictable ways and can be completely avoided with the right education, awareness and planning.
Losing one child is one too many, and we don’t want any parent to have to endure the loss of a child. That’s why we’re calling on everyone to come together, to raise awareness and to get involved so we can ensure that all children have the chance to grow up healthy and safe, and do all the great things kids were meant to do.
We are proudly led by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta with 33 local coalitions around the state.
