stands for “Kids Are Special People.” Each spring, Day brings approximately 600 third grade students from area schools to Saint Francis Hospital.
This year the students will come from the Union School District.
Large white tents are erected on the front lawn of the hospital. These tents serve as learning stations, emphasizing good health and wellness concepts through the use of puppeteers, magicians and health care professionals.
The children love the police car and the ambulance that familiarize them with emergency vehicles. Day combines a sound, well-coordinated education experience with a “dose of fun.”
This year is our 30th anniversary. We will celebrate the event on May 1, 2012.
