Bikes, Blades & Boards News

   

The Hamilton Brain Injury Association proudly presents The Bikes, Blades & Boards Education Program. HBIA has been a proud sponsor for several years of this program. This year, HBIA takes on a bigger role in helping this program to continue being successful!!

 

Bikes, Blades & Boards is an in-school injury prevention & helmet safety presentation for grade 2 students run each year between April and June. The curriculum includes:

  • Interactive discussion regarding parts of the brain, their function, and difficulties when damaged.
  • Demonstrations regarding safe helmet use.
  • A short video on bicycle safety, helmet features, and proper use.
  • A thorough helmet inspection, adjustment and education session.
  • Stickers, pamphlets and various other colorful and informative handouts.
  • A take home individualized “report card” providing information to parents on their children’s helmet wearing habits.
