Iowa is one of only three states that does not have any laws related to helmet usage. While 22 states have helmet use laws applying to minor bicyclists and 47 have helmet use laws for motorcyclists, Iowa has neither law. As a brain injury rehabilitation provider, On With Life sees the impact of no helmet law, and we'd like to educate and encourage our lawmakers to consider passing those laws in Iowa.
As a way to spread awareness, we will once again be giving away free helmets this summer in all three of our communities! See below for details about our upcoming events.
We are partnering with the Kiwanis Club of Glenwood to give away free helmets as part of our Celebrate Summer event! We will have a variety of sizes available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Grab your helmet at the helmet table and then stick around for food, music and fun!
We are partnering with the Coralville Police Department to giveaway free helmets in the Coralville community! We will have a variety of sizes available on a first-come-first-serve basis. The Pink Umbrella Bakery will be joining us in the parking lot for some sweet treats, as well!
