Helmets on Kids

2V1_WebBanner1

Safety first in preventing concussions and head injury is the goal of this program. An unexpected fall from a bike can happen at any time and can result in a serious brain injury. We do not want that to happen!

The generosity of donors allows us provide new helmets to fit young people up to age 18 years with a proper fitting helmet. We instruct them on why they need to wear the helmet, how to wear the helmet properly and encourage them to wear the helmet whenever they are riding their bicycles, scooters, or skateboards. Education is key to this program and we provide this at all our fittings. We adhere to the 2V1 method of helmet fitting because it is not enough to just wear a helmet – it needs to fit properly.

We collaborate with Bike Windsor Essex, the City of Windsor Bicycle Committee, the local school boards and county police departments to support our program and provide opportunities to properly fit children who otherwise would not have a helmet to wear.

If you are involved with a children’s or youth group and would like to have helmets fitted, please complete the application form below.

Please note that our goal is to provide helmets to children who otherwise could not afford a helmet. We do not provide individual helmets.
