helmet requests

A leading cause of death for children is head trauma from crashes where a helmet was not worn. Dayton Children's and Safe Kids Greater Dayton make helmets available to children to protect their heads in a crash. In addition to helmets, participants will also receive education on staying safe while participating in wheeled sports including biking, skating and more.  

The This is how we Roll helmet safety program provides organizations who promote active transportation safety in our 20-county service area up to 25 free helmets to be distributed and fitted during bike and other wheeled sport events.  

To request helmets please use our helmet request form at least 4 weeks prior to a scheduled event. 

Partners in Prevention (program donors)

Dayton Children’s couldn’t do this work without the support of our generous partners.
