About This Activity

The Christiana Care Trauma Program is hosting our Injury Prevention 5K Run/Walk and 1K Children’s Fun Run on Thursday, April 16, 2015. We have changed the name of our event from the ThinkFirst 5K to reflect our growing injury prevention efforts. This event is a celebration of life and success in the face of significant odds. Injury is the leading cause of death and disability for people from the ages of one to 44. Every day Christiana Care’s Trauma Program witness how lives are changed forever due to traumatic injuries. Because of this our injury prevention initiatives have grown to address falls in the older adult, distracted and impaired driving, bike, helmet, sports safety as well as violence prevention.
