Lids For Kids Is Rolling Into Grand Rapids On June 10, 2017!
The 2017 Lids for Kids bike helmet giveaway and bicycle safety event will be held in Grand Rapids Saturday, June 10, 2017, at Garfield Park. The free Grand Rapids bike helmet event is held in addition to our Lids for Kids events in Lansing and Traverse City.
Children who attend not only receive free bike helmets, but have them custom fitted by trained volunteers. It’s not enough to just wear a bicycle helmet — making sure it fits properly goes even further to help prevent brain injury in a bike accident.
The Sinas Dramis Law Firm is proud to say that, in 2016, we gave away 439 bicycle helmets to West Michigan children!
In addition to getting free bike helmets, children who attend Lids for Kids have a chance to win a new bike, as well as prizes generously donated by local businesses and organizations. Those who bring their bicycles can also register for a free bike license, and local firefighters are on hand to give fire engine tours.
Lids for Kids: Why do we give away free bike helmets in Grand Rapids?
The Sinas Dramis Law Firm has a longstanding commitment to promoting and advocating bicycle safety across Michigan. In keeping with this commitment, in June 2014 we held the first Lids for Kids event in Grand Rapids.
Along with our gracious co-sponsors and community partners, we are able to fit children with free, brand-new bicycle helmets, just in time for summer riding.
As a Grand Rapids personal injury firm that has represented injured people across Michigan, we understand the importance of putting safety first. Unfortunately, we have seen and heard of cases where kids have sustained severe, catastrophic brain injuries because they were not wearing a bike helmet, or were wearing a helmet that did not fit properly. We have also seen instances where children’s lives were saved because they wore a properly fitted helmet. In fact, research shows that a majority of bicycle-related brain injuries could be prevented by simply wearing a properly fitted helmet.
Because we believe in preventing injury before it happens, we made a commitment to distribute bike helmets in the communities that we serve. We are proud to help hundreds of children in West Michigan who might not otherwise get a bike helmet.
