ThinkFirst and Children’s Hospital of Illinois will hand out bike helmets May 15 at the Peoria Chief’s game versus Wisconsin at Dozer Park.

Game time is 6:30 PM.

Injury is the leading cause of death and disability among children, teens and young adults. The most frequent causes of these injuries are motor vehicle crashes, violence, falls, sports, and recreation. Most of these injuries are preventable.

The ThinkFirst National Injury Prevention Foundation encourages young people learn to reduce their risk for injury by doing things such as wearing a seat belt, reducing distractions while driving, and wearing a helmet on a bicycle.

The helmets are for kids under 18.
