Free Bike Helmet Fitting and Giveaway
Each year, approximately 300,000 kids go to the ER because of bike injuries, and 26,000 are treated for traumatic brain injury. According to the CDC, wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of head injury to bicyclists by as much as 85%. Tennessee law requires children 16 years of age and younger to wear a helmet if they are biking.
The Law offices of John Day wants all children in our community to have access to a safe, well-fitting helmet. To raise awareness about helmet safety to prevent head injuries, The Law Offices of John Day will be sponsoring a bicycle helmet fitting and giveaway on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the 42nd annual Pioneer Days at Cannonsburgh Village in Murfreesboro from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Children and their parents can take part in this event by visiting the Law Offices of John Day's booth. Each child will be fitted for a free helmet and instructed on the correct way to wear their helmet while riding. If your child already owns a helmet, bring it to the event and our staff will check sizing and make adjustments to ensure a proper fit. One helmet per child please, and children must be present to be fitted and receive a helmet. Quantities are limited, and are on a first come, first serve basis.
Experts recommend that helmets should sit on the top of the head in a level position, with the chin strap buckled snugly, and side straps should form a "V" shape under and slightly in front of the ears.
Visit our booth on Saturday, April 28th to learn more about bicycle safety!
