About this campaign

Support the Ohio AAP Foundation's "Put a Lid on It" Bike Helmet Safety program! Bike Helmet Safety Week 2014 will be held from May 9 - 18, and will reach millions of people in Ohio and nationwide with the message the bike helmets save lives. Your support will be used to provide helmets for Ohio children in need!

LogopngYour support will allow the Ohio AAP Foundation to provide additional bike helmets to children throughout Ohio as part of Bike Helmet Safety Week in 2014, May 9 - 18. By May of 2014 the Ohio AAP Foundation will have distributed over 10,000 bike helmets to those in need. Bicycles are tied to more childhood injuries than any consumer product, including trampolines, ladders, and swimming pools. In 2010, the number of people injured by NOT wearing a bike helmet was 51,000 – enough children to fill the University of Akron’s James A. Rhodes Arena nearly 10 times. Currently in Ohio, estimates are that just 10-20% of children wear bike helmets, yet more than 70 percent of children ages 5 to 14 ride a bicycle regularly. Seventy-five percent of bike-related fatalities among children would be prevented with a helmet. Helmet use can reduce head injury risks by 85% and severe brain injury by 88%.

Universal use of bicycle helmets by children ages 4 to 15 could prevent between 135 and 155 deaths, between 39,000 and 45,000 head injuries, and between 18,000 and 55,000 scalp and face injuries annually. A $10.00 bike helmet saves the healthcare system $41.00 per child.

Bike safety is very important here in our office. For the past 2 years we have celebrated Bike Helmet Safety Week and this year we thought it would be great to purchase these shirts showing the kids just how important helmets are!

Bicycle safety is very important in our community. There are still a lot of kids that either do not wear a helmet because they don’t understand the importance, or they cannot simply cannot afford one. These children are at higher risk for falls and injuries due to not being properly protected. By receiving this grant, we will be able to provide children in need of a helmet, and will be able to educate the importance of bike helmet safety. As of 2012, only 21 states have bicycle safety laws currently in place for children. According to the AAP and Safekids, the use of wearing a helmet reduces injury. Statistics from these sources state that the reduction includes: Head injury 45-85% decline, TBI: 33-89% decline, fatal injury: 29%decline, facial injury: 27-65%decline.
