Free event to promote head injury awareness teaches skill, safety to kids

News

A fun and free local event are gearing up to teach kids about head injuries, how to prevent concussions — and even give out free helmets.

Devastating head injuries can happen anywhere — even your driveway.  The key to prevention is awareness…and following the law, which states kids must wear helmets. As of July 1, 2007 children and youth younger than 18 y.o., are required by law to wear a helmet when using bicycles, tricycles, skateboards, scooters, and skates on public property in NM.  Adults can model this behavior and encourage it. 

The event will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Johnny Tapia Community Center.

Kids will learn about bike safety, concussion prevention and treatment, and get a free helmet!
