The HKQ Kids® Fund is administered by the Luzerne Foundation. Our mission is to promote child safety and public awareness of child hazards through our annual bicycle helmet giveaway, free safety training seminars for child caretakers like babysitters and coaches, and educational outreach programs.

"HKQ Kids® honors the many families we've represented whose children were injured or killed as a result of totally preventable hazards," said Quinn, senior personal injury attorney at HKQ. "It is our fervent hope that HKQ Kids® will help prevent those kinds of tragedies in the future."
