NORWICH – Community members are welcome to take part in the effort to save lives by participating in a local fundraiser to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Cassie and Robert Clipston, local Tykes-N-Tots Daycare owners, are sponsoring a St. Jude Trike-A-Thon from 1 to 4 p.m. April 20 at 10 Griffin St. in Norwich.
Funds raised will go to the internationally recognized hospital St. Jude, a hospital with an ongoing fight against childhood catastrophic diseases.
Trike-A-Thon is designed to expose pre-schoolers to using riding toys safely through a week-long fun activity and provides a parent awareness program, involving parents in safe behavior practices to help ensure their child’s well-being. Cassie says she will be discussing the importance of outdoor, tricycle and bicycle safety with the children all week before the event. She says she has activities to engage the smaller kids so they too will understand the importance of being safe when they are outside.
