We are pleased to announce the return of Lids for Kids – our free Grand Rapids bike helmet fitting and giveaway event – is returning for the 2022 season! After postponing the event for the past two years due to the novel coronavirus and out of an abundance of safety precautions for event-goers and event volunteers, we look forward to serving the Grand Rapids community once again this year and fitting kids properly with free bicycle helmets!
What: Our annual free bicycle helmet fitting and giveaway event
When: Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 10 AM – 12 PM
Where: Garfield Park – Burton & Jefferson Entrance
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 personal injury law firm that has represented injured people across Michigan, we understand the importance of putting safety first. Unfortunately, we have seen cases where kids have sustained 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 have made a commitment to distribute bike helmets in the communities that we serve. We are proud to be able to help hundreds of children in West Michigan who might not otherwise get a bike helmet.
Lids for Kids Grand Rapids is sponsored by Sinas Dramis Law Firm and Brain Injury Association of Michigan.For details on our annual Lids for Kids events, please visit the Lids for Kids website. If you have questions about the bike helmet giveaway, please contact Alisha Spencer at 517-394-7500.
Despite another year of rain, our 2019 Grand Rapids Lids for Kids – the last event series we were able to host – set a historical record. We properly fit and handed out 650+ helmets to West Michigan kids.
Children who have attended Lids for Kids not only receive free bike helmets but are also properly fitted by trained volunteers. It’s not enough to just wear a bicycle helmet — proper fit helps prevent brain injury in a bike accident even more when compared to a loose or wobbly helmet.
In addition to getting free bike helmets in Grand Rapids, children in attendance are also able to enter into a drawing for a chance to win a variety of prizes – including a new bike – all generously donated by local businesses and organizations.
