Excitement is building for Be Safe Saturday: March 23

An estimated 13,000 people are expected to pour into TMC’s Parking Lot 11 for the 9th annual Be Safe Saturday  this Saturday, March 23.  Parking will be available nearby in surface lots and in the new 600-space garage next to the soon-to-open Orthopaedic and Surgical Tower.

The event is sponsored by Children’s Miracle Network, which helps TMC provide the 4,000 bike helmets and 1,200 booster seats that will be handed out.  Be Safe Saturday  will feature approximately 100 interactive booths – all with a different message.

Turtle_Pic“The commitment we have to the community is strong and unique to TMC.  Every booth is engaging.  It’s about providing education and resources to keep kids and their families safe in their everyday lives,” said Hope Thomas, TMC Community Programs Director.

There will be information on martial arts for kids, a jumping castle, a climbing wall,  even a corral set up to reinforce safety practices around horses.  With warmer months ahead, the Kohl’s Cares Vest It Up! program can help parents track down free swim lessons for their kids.  Tucson’s new soccer team, FS Tucson, will be there, and as an added bonus, Tucson Food Truck Roundup will feature gourmet food for purchase from funky mobile kitchens.
