Hard Hats For Little Heads
950 Helmets Given Away SO FAR!!!
The Texas Medical Association’s Hard Hats for Little Head bicycle helmet giveaway program was created to help reduce head injury among Texas children. A properly fitting helmet can prevent almost all head injuries — up to 85 percent — the most common cause of disability or death in a bicycle crash. Since 1994, TMA has given away more than 145,000 helmets to Texas children. The Texas Medical Association Alliance works diligently with each county alliance to set up Hard Hat events across Texas. The Bell County Medical Alliance started this program in our area 3 years ago.
We have been able to host Hard Hats giveaways at the following:
Texas A& M Healthfest 2012, 2013 & 2014
Meredith Dunbar Pre-School 2013
McLane Children's Scott & White Eggstravaganza 2014
