Annual Summer Helmet Campaign
We are excited to be partnering with the Ankeny Police Department for this year's campaign!
Starting soon, Ankeny Police will be rewarding kids wearing helmets and giving them a coupon for a free Orange Leaf treat. They will be giving free helmet coupons to kids who they see without a helmet. Keep your eye out around Ankeny this July-August!

Wear Your Helmet to Work
This August, join On With Life for the fourth annual Wear Your Helmet at Work event! 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.
