RIAJ Bike Helmet Safety Program

 

Every spring, just before schools let out for the summer, the RI Association for Justice sponsors its Bike Helmet Program.  We have been very active in making the community aware of the law requiring children 15 years and younger to wear a helmet.  Members of RIAJ visit elementary schools throughout the state to teach them the importance of wearing a helmet when riding a bike, skateboard, inline skates, scooters, etc.

 

Through donations from RIAJ members, a free helmet is given to each student.  Since 1998, the organization has given away more than 8,000 helmets.  As we continue to support this community outreach program, we are asking and hoping that each RIAJ member will participate.  Please contribute toward the purchase of helmets at a cost of $5.00 each.  Every penny of your donation is going to the purchase of helmets.  With your support, we look forward to another successful program!
