Children bicycle safety is an important issue in the United States, especially in bike friendly areas such as Vermont. 112 children age 19 and under died in 2010 as a result of a bicycle related injury. Helmets are an easy way to protect children from bicycle related head and brain injury and death, but some people do not understand the importance of helmets or cannot afford to buy helmets. With the help of North Country Hospital we are striving to keep kids safe in the North East Kingdom of Vermont by teaching bike safety and providing helmets at discounted cost.
