We are partnering with @bcbsmichigan to raise awareness of child abuse and neglect in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month. We have “planted” 5,000 blue pinwheels across three of our parks. Additionally, one larger-than-life blue pinwheel built by @paradecompany will be in front of #CampusMartiusPark. We would love for you to come out and take photos of the pinwheels and tag us! Thank you for helping to support our efforts. 📸 by @3andathird for DDP.
