From helmet giveaway hosts: 

“Our clinic loves this program and participates every year. We appreciate the opportunity to discuss safety and encourage physical activity.”
Pamela Chung, MD, Sugar Land family physician 

“I enjoy being a part of this great cause with an excellent message of brain injury prevention. Cannot be better than actually giving the ‘hard hat’ to bike and scooter riders that we routinely advise kids and parents to use.”
 – Arathi Shah, MD, Kyle pediatrician 

“Interacting with the kids, fitting them with helmets, and teaching kids and parents about safety and accident prevention was a rewarding experience.”
Modupe Sokunbi, MD, Nacogdoches pediatrician 

“We developed a strong relationship with a YMCA in West San Antonio. It’s an underserved area we will partner with in the future. The children and parents were grateful for the helmets and took the safety instructions seriously.”
Danielle Henkes, Bexar County Medical Society Alliance 

“Our event was so much fun. I loved seeing the children’s excitement for getting a helmet.”
Sandra Abadie, Henderson County Medical Society Alliance

“This was a great way to learn about public message delivery.”
Jeffrey Li, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School student 

“We had a lot of children who didn’t know they were supposed to protect their head with a helmet while riding a bike. With the information provided, we were able to educate the child on helmet safety.”
Donna Coleman, Jackson County Hospital District 

“We enjoyed interacting with the children and parents. It was a good PR activity for the hospital, and it helps us meet our injury prevention goals as a trauma center.”
Mary Frost, Huntsville Memorial Hospital 

From helmet recipients: 

“I learned how they should fit correctly and now we feel a bit safer with our children riding their bikes.”

“This is the best. Now my Mom will let me ride my bike.”
