The Get Active, Be Safe! initiative will kick off Thursday, April 17, 2014 in Quincy.

The kick off location will be at Madison Davis Bicycle shop at 8th and Jefferson from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to this very special Get Active, Be Safe Open House Event. At 6, Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore will issue a proclamation to declare the month of May to be Get Active, Be Safe! Month.

Many activities will be held throughout May and into June, like a child's bicycle giveaway. Friends of the Trails will give away a kid's bike and helmet. Register to win at the Quincy Hy-Vee on Broadway. You can fill out a registration form at the display April 17 through May 15. Also, May 7 will be National Bike to School Day hosted by the Adams County Safe Kids Coalition.
