Evangelical Community Health and Wellness to Hold Free Bike Helmet Giveaway and Safety Program

May 16, 2018


Wearing properly-fitted, Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulated helmets can reduce the risk of head injuries by at least 45 percent – yet less than half of children 14 and under usually wear a bike helmet. Evangelical Community Health and Wellness wants to educate kids and parents on the importance of wearing a helmet.

On Tuesday, June 12, 2018, from 4-6 pm, Community Health and Wellness is holding a free bike helmet give away event for children 12 and under at McDonald’s on Route 15 in Lewisburg. The event is being sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Buffalo Valley in Lewisburg. Inc. and Walmart Supercenter, Lewisburg. 

Children taking part in the event will be fitted with a CPSC regulated bike helmet and instructed on safe bike helmet use in exchange for a book that is new or in good condition. Children must be present to receive a helmet and to have it properly fitted. Supplies for this event are limited and will be given away on a first come basis.

All books received during the event will be donated to the Eastern Union County Food Bank and a local child care center.
