As part of the “Pinwheels for Prevention” project, 1,720 pinwheels – one for each child who died nationwide as a result of child abuse in 2017 – will be planted on Intermountain Healthcare's Primary Children’s lawn on Monday as a reminder of the gravity of child abuse and a symbol of hope for a safer tomorrow for children. The “Pinwheels for Prevention” will be planted by Primary Children’s Hospital, Family Support Centers, Prevent Child Abuse Utah, the Utah Attorney General’s Office and Children’s Justice Centers, and the Utah Division of Child and Family Services. The group will share ways to help prevent child abuse and intervene when abuse is suspected.
