Free Bike Helmet Giveaway
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), bicycling contributes to more head injuries than any other sport for children ages 5-14, yet only 48% of children wear a helmet when riding their bike. Each year approximately 300,000 kids go to the ER because of bike injuries, and 26,000 are treated for traumatic brain injuries. Studies have shown that wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of brain injury and death by as much as 85% because the helmet absorbs the majority of shock during impact rather than your head or brain. Experts recommend that helmets should sit on the top of the head in a level position, with the chin strap buckled snugly with the side straps forming a “V” shape under, and slightly in front of your ears.
The Law Offices of John Day, P.C. wants all children in our community to have access to a safe, well-fitted helmet. Once again, to raise awareness about the benefits of bike helmets in preventing serious head injuries, we will be sponsoring a bicycle helmet giveaway.
When: Saturday, July 21, 2018
Where: Baby and Kids Expo at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital
When: 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Children can receive a free helmet by visiting the Law Offices of John Day, P.C.’s booth at the Baby and Kid’s Expo. The helmets will be available in multiple sizes so parents can ensure a good fit for their child, and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
We hope to see you there! Please share this page to help us spread the word.
