  Safe Kids Super Saturday will feature many activities for kids, including an opportunity to interact with EMS, police officers, helicopter transport, fire trucks, and more.

The Regional Medical Center along with Safe Kids of Orangeburg, Bamberg and Calhoun Counties and the Regional Medical Center Foundation will host the 22nd Annual Safe Kids Super Saturday event in conjunction with the 14th Annual Wellness Celebration at the Prince of Orange Mall on Saturday August 26th from 10 am – 1 pm.

Both events are free, and the public is invited to attend.

Safe Kids Super Saturday will promote safety and injury prevention among children, and the 14th Annual Wellness Celebration emphasizes mental and physical health, educates the public about available health resources, and features exhibits from businesses and organizations.

“The Regional Medical Center and its partners are proud to offer these annual events focused on the health, wellness and safety of our community’s families and children,” said RMC Interim President & CEO Bert Whitaker, FACHE.

Safe Kids Super Saturday promotes good health and safety among children. The first 250 children, ages 4 through 12, who complete the “Safety Circle Challenge” at center court inside the Mall, will receive a free tee shirt.  The event will feature a drive-through child safety seat check with information about the new South Carolina Child Passenger safety laws that cover car seat safety. Children will have the opportunity to interact with the STAR team, a helicopter, fire truck and emergency vehicles. Other activities available for kids will include exhibits, games and more.

The Wellness Celebration will feature free health screenings for adults including cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar checks. Multiple organizations will participate and provide information about the many community resources available.
