CHI Health Good Samaritan and Safe Kids Platte Valley will have bike helmets available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. In toddler through adult sizes, helmets will be distributed for a suggested donation of $10 to the Good Samaritan Foundation. All helmets meet current safety standards and will be fitted by trained staff members from Good Samaritan Emergency Services.
More children ages 5 to 14 are seen in emergency rooms for injuries related to biking than any other sport. Helmets can reduce the risk of severe brain injuries by 88 percent, yet only 45 percent of children 14 and under usually wear them.
