Kicking Off the Summer
Officers from Central East Division partnered with Durham Region Housing to throw the fourth annual Summer Kick-Off party for a community in Oshawa. More than 100 kids and their families gathered at the Lakeview Harbourside complex for fun, food and prizes. The kids were treated to crafts, balloon animals, temporary tattoos, food and a video booth while they learned about staying safe this summer.
The Brain Injury Association of Durham Region was on hand giving out 75 helmets. Donated by Jane Conte from Conte Lawyers and Lindsay Charles from McLeish Orlando, in partnership with Canadian Tire – Oshawa South. Representatives were teaching kids about the importance of protecting their heads when riding bikes and scooters–complete with a broken egg test to simulate how helmets shield us from injuries.
Roughly 30 volunteers were on hand to connect with community members and discuss their services from the following various community organizations. The Brain Injury Association of Durham Region would like to thank their partners and all community agencies that attended and for their continued support with this fun event.
