“Helmets on Kids” is an initiative, started by the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association in London, Ontario in 2002. The goal of the project is to donate bicycle helmets and to promote education and awareness on proper bicycle helmet use.
The program came to Peel Region in 2008 with the purchase of the first 500 helmets
Helmets on Kids – Peel is a joint venture of the Brain Injury Association of Peel and Halton, the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, the Peel Children’s SafetyVillage, Peel Regional Police, Peel Public Health and Peel District School Board. The kick off event and safety assemblies are held every June to coincide with Brain Injury Awareness Month.
After showing students how to properly fit a bike helmet “Officer Michelle” (Cst. Michelle Vivian) walked them through the rules of the road including proper hand signals while riding a bicycle.
