UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital Injury Prevention Center wants to work with schools in Greater Cleveland to raise awareness about bicycle safety during National Bicycle Safety Month. We have special offers to keep students safe this spring as they ride their bikes.
Students can participate in National Bike to School Week from May 6-10 (Bike to School Day is Wednesday, May 8) as they learn more about bike safety and the advantages of staying active. Schools can get involved by having students ride their bikes to school at least one day during this week. Participating schools will receive a curriculum with four lesson plans, four activities to complement the lesson plans and eight master handouts, as well as giveaways, including pencils, stickers and tattoos, to provide to students who ride their bikes during the week. Additionally, we will donate a helmet(s) to raffle to a student(s) who rode their bike to school.
If you would like to participate in Bike to School Week, please fill out the Participation Form. The Bike to School Week curriculum and activities are a great addition to your spring programs. If you would like to participate in Bike to School Week or to order bulk bike helmets, please contact Mandy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216.983.1105.

The Rainbow Injury Prevention Center is looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night, 5:30-8:00 pm, at the Rainbow Injury Prevention Center’s 13th Annual Holiday Mocktail Party and Safe Kids Benefit at the Cleveland Marriott East, 26300 Harvard Rd., Warrensville Heights (near the intersection of I-480 and I-271). It’s not too late to RSVP and no one is going to want to miss it—there are great non alcoholic cocktails being mixed up by our community partner agencies and a fabulous mix of silent auction and raffle items that could help you make a serious dent in your holiday shopping! Here is a copy of the auction guide so you can take a look and make up your shopping list.
Some of you have mentioned that you have friends or colleagues who cannot attend, but would like to support the fundraiser and aid in our efforts to reduce childhood injuries and keep Greater Cleveland families safe and healthy. We’re happy to help! Anyone who cannot make it can still purchase raffle tickets (75 for $50, or 25 for $20)—just have your friends take a look through the raffle section of the attached book and let us know the numbers of the items they’re interested in and the number of tickets they want in each basket (i.e., “put 25 tickets in the Nexus tablet basket”), and we’ll take care of the rest. Here is the pre-order raffle ticket form to make it easy. We’ll contact any winners who aren’t present when the winning raffle tickets are drawn to make arrangements for pickup. There are some exceptional silent auction packages this year as well, but you’ll have to be present at the fundraiser to enter your bids.
You’re going to want to come out and cheer on our mixers who will be competing for the coveted prizes of best mocktail and best holiday display (see the auction guide for a sneak peek at their terrific recipes)! The party is a great way to soak up some holiday cheer and get some great ideas to make sure the designated drivers and nondrinkers at your holiday parties can still be part of the festivities.
Please contact Mandy Thomas (Mandy.Thomas@UHhospitals.org or 216-983-1105) to RSVP or to order pre-labeled raffle tickets.
We can’t wait to see you and your families. Feel free to pass the invitation along to friends, family or colleagues.
