This week, General Motors has teamed up with the Safe Kids Worldwide Foundation to promote “National Heatstroke Awareness Day.”
The awareness day, which takes place on Wednesday, July 31st, is part of the Safe Kids Worldwide “Never Leave Your Child in a Car” campaign created to spread information on the perils of leaving children unattended in vehicles on hot days. In keeping with its high regard for driver and passenger safety both on and off the road, GM has donated $200,000 to the Safe Kids Worldwide Foundation to support the campaign.
According to the national Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 37 children dies each year from heatstroke.
“Even one death is too many, so we are grateful to have support from the GM Foundation to raise awareness about heatstroke prevention,” said Kate Carr, CEO of the Safe Kids Worldwide Foundation.
