Rocky Mountain Youth Medical & Nursing Consultants, Inc. wrote -The average price of a bike helmet for a young child is between $15-$25. Unfortunately, we know many families who cannot afford to spend this money on helmets for kids, as that money is better spent buying essentials like food and clothing. If the child does have a bike, they go without a helmet when they ride. The number one prevention for bike injuries is wearing a bike helmet.
Almost half of children that are hospitalized for bike-related injuries are diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, and nearly 60% of childhood bicycle-related deaths occur on minor roads. However, helmets reduce the risk of brain injury by 88%! Donating just $10 to our cause will help 2 children get helmets that otherwise would be riding without--unprotected and vulnerable. Help us help our kids!
