The West Virginia Helmet Truck made stops this weekend in Elkins, WV at the West Virginia Children’s Home, and in Beverly, WV at the Randolph County Fair to provide free bicycle helmets to kids.
Nearly 300,000 children are injured from bicycle related accidents each year. Wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of a severe brain injury by 88%. Unfortunately, the majority of children don’t wear a helmet while riding their bikes
Colombo Law has partnered with the WVU Medicine Trauma Center to provide children with free bike helmets and information on bicycle safety. Colombo Law is committed to keeping the children in our community safe. That is why the West Virginia Helmet Truck will be making visits throughout North Central West Virginia between April and October to ensure that the children in our community can stay safe while riding their bikes.
So far this year, the West Virginia Helmet Truck has provided over 1000 helmets to kids at the following events in our community.
– Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs Expo
– WVU Medicine Children’s Kids Fair
– Stonewood Lions Club Bike Safety Fair
– Yes We Can Ability Ride
– MedExpress Kids Day
– Doddridge County Fair
– West Virginia Children’s Home
