TMA’s Hard Hats for Little Heads program helps reduce brain injuries and encourage kids to exercise by giving away bicycle helmets at local events. Since 1994, TMA has given more than 235,000 free helmets to children across Texas.
TMA provides everything you need for your local event, from helmets to publicity and educational materials to media support. You can host an event anytime in 2016 or during the program’s key months: March, Brain Injury Awareness Month; April, Child Safety Month in Texas; May, Bike Month; and October, Hard Hats for Little Heads Month.
TMA provides free helmets to go along with the ones you purchase. For example, if you buy 50 helmets, we give you 50 more at no cost. Helmets purchased through TMA cost $7.60 per helmet, including shipping.
Email TMA’s outreach coordinator or call (800) 880-1300, ext. 1470, to start planning your event.
Hard Hats for Little Heads is supported in 2016 through a TMA Foundation grant thanks to top donors — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, an anonymous physician and spouse, TMAF Make-A-Difference donors, and the Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio — and generous gifts from TMA and TMA Alliance members, and friends of medicine.
