State Farm Presents Cheyenne Regional Injury Prevention/Safe Communities with Good Neighbor Citizenship® Grant

November 2014

Cheyenne, WY—State Farm has awarded a Good Neighbor Citizenship grant of $15,000 to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center’s Injury Prevention/Safe Communities program.

The $15,000 received from State Farm in January 2014 was used to pay for an impaired and distracted driving simulator that is designed to prevent destructive driving behaviors among teens and young adults. The most recent use of the simulator was at East High school in Cheyenne Wyoming to focus on Teen Driving Safety Week/October 19-25.

“Over the years, we’ve seen our hospital partners deliver amazing programs that have a direct and lasting impact on teens and families,” said Stephanie Heitsch/Injury Prevention Coordinator. “We believe that through our partnership and this grant, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and its Injury Prevention program will do the same.”

“We want to thank State Farm for their generosity. These funds will help ensure that teens are made more aware of the dangers of driving impaired and distracted.”
