Due to current health and safety precautions surrounding the global pandemic COVID-19, and with uncertainty whether or not Governor Whitmer’s shelter-in-place Executive Order will extend beyond three weeks, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Lids for Kids events in Traverse City, Lansing, and Grand Rapids.
Due to the nature of these events and the need to be in close physical contact to properly fit children with helmets, we feel this is the best way to protect event goers, their families, volunteers, and our communities at this time.
Please continue to use this website as a resource for all things helmet safety. Our Lids for Kids Facebook page is also a great resource as spring rounds the corner and more and more families are using this time to get outside and explore more outdoor hobbies.
We will be back with a bang in 2021 and we look forward to seeing you!
