Texas Medical Association's Hard Hats for Little Heads bicycle helmet giveaway program celebrates its 20th birthday this year. Help us make it an extraordinary year by sponsoring a helmet giveaway in your community.
TMA family members — physicians, county medical societies, medical students, and TMA Alliance members — can sponsor events. TMA provides everything you need for your event, from helmets to publicity materials to promotional and educational materials.
For the first 50 helmets you purchase, TMA provides another 50 helmets at no charge. From there, the helmet match increases based on the number you purchase. Helmets are $7.35 each, including shipping.
So far, TMA has given away 166,000 helmets to Texas children. In celebration of the program's 20-year history, we want to reach a new landmark — giving away our 200,000th helmet. That means we need to give 34,000 helmets over the next 12 months. Help us meet this goal.
Plan your event today. Here are three ideal times for an event:
- March: Brain Injury Awareness Month,
- April: Texas Child Safety Month, and
- May: Bike Month.
For more information, contact Tammy Wishard, TMA's outreach coordinator, by email or by telephone at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1470, or (512) 370-1470.
Hard Hats for Little Heads is made possible through a grant from the TMA Foundation thanks to top donors — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Prudential, and two anonymous foundations - and generous gifts from physicians and their families and friends of medicine.
