We are proud to sponsor “Helmets on Kids”, a program started by the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA) in London, Ontario in 2002. The goal of the project is to donate bicycle helmets and to promote education and awareness on proper bicycle helmet use.
The program came to Peel Region in 2008 with the purchase of the first 500 helmets. Helmets on Kids – Peel is a joint venture of the Brain Injury Association of Peel and Halton, OTLA, Peel Children’s Safety Village, Peel Regional Police, Peel Public Health and Peel District School Board.
The kick off event for safety assemblies was held on June 5th at Lancaster Public School, to coincide with Brain Injury Awareness Month across Canada.
