With Lids for Kids 2023 officially in the books we’re proud to announce that between our events in Grand Rapids and Lansing, nearly 1,000 children were given a free helmet that was properly fit to their head. We know that wearing a helmet while riding a bike can save lives, and it’s one of the most important tools for preventing brain injury.

Since the event first began, we’ve now given away and fitted more than 14,000 kids with bike helmets.
We look forward to seeing everyone next year, and remember when you’re riding this summer, wear those helmets!
