Burn Injury Awareness Walk & Picnic

Facepainting under the tent at the annual picnic

• celebrate recovery • honor a loved one • support the prevention of burn injuries •

Burns are difficult and challenging injuries, as they often have a life-long impact. The suffering caused by burns is made even more tragic by the fact that they are preventable. The Burn Injury Awareness Walk will bring together burn survivors and their families, first responders, safety and medical professionals, and community members to walk for burn injury awareness, public education, and prevention. A Safety Education Fair and picnic will immediately follow the walk and offer fun for all ages.
