Soroptimists present child-safety program

Provided to the Tribune

For the 10th year, Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe and Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra will present the program “A Fighting Chance” to third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students at these schools: Bijou, Tahoe Valley, Sierra House, the Lake Tahoe Environmental Magnet school and St. Theresa Elementary.

The program started Monday.

“A Fighting Chance” was developed after Jaycee Lee Dugard was abducted from the South Shore in 1991 and never seen again.

In conjunction with El Dorado law enforcement, the program offers proactive instructions to keep our children safe.

Children learn to identify strangers, keep a safe distance from strangers, be aware of their surroundings, get away immediately, use a code word and yell.

These measures could save their lives.
