Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center's Violence and Injury Prevention Program received a $25,000 grant from the SBM Charitable Foundation (“SBMCF”).
Part of the grant funds will be used to conduct bike rodeos for children living east of the Connecticut River. During the "rodeos" children will learn the safety rules of the road and how to properly wear a helmet.
Last year the program received a similar grant that allowed it to provide more than 450 multi-sport helmets to children.
