Knit newborn hats to raise awareness
On Sunday Sept. 8 newborn hats will be knit at United Lutheran Church from 1 to 5 p.m. The event is to raise awareness for "One Shake is All it Takes," an education and prevention program for shaken baby syndrome in Goodhue County.
The program was started in May by Kelsie Kuyath, seven months after her daughter Kyra was diagnosed with SBS. "Our mission is to educate and spread Shake Baby awareness and help prevent it," she said. The group has grown to include representation from Iowa, where half of the knit hats will go.
