Join us on Saturday, May 18th from 10 AM to 2 PM for our Second Annual Bike Helmet Giveaway. Helmets will be provided to children between the ages of 4 and 16 when accompanied by a parent on a first come, first served basis while available. In addition, we will provide information to parents on how to recognize if their child has had a concussion.
Kids will also have a chance to play Rocket Blades: The Brain Safety Game, a free app from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) that teaches children how to recognize concussion symptoms and communicate them to adults.
To download fact sheets for parents, an app for parents to recognize the signs of concussion, and the Rocket Blades game at no charge, visit the CDC site by clicking here.
