The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — SGMC, Kohl’s Department Store, Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department and Safe Kids Lowndes County will host Bike Smart! — a bike safety and bike rodeo program.

The event will be held from 9-11 a.m., Saturday, April 26 from in SGMC’s Surgery Center parking lot. This event is for children ages 5-12. Children will receive hands-on instruction in bike safety and learn how to wear a bike helmet properly. Education will also be provided on bike laws and street safety. Children who participate will receive a fitted bike helmet, water bottle, T-shirt, and a chance to win a bike.

Sponsored by Kohl’s department stores nationwide, the Kohl’s Cares program affords shoppers in each of its stores the opportunity to purchase lovable, huggable plush toys and books for $5 each. The profit from these sales goes to benefit local hospital partners like South Georgia Medical Center. Funding for Bike Smart! comes from the sale of those items.
