Each year, the YMCA locations across the country host Healthy Kids Day. It’s an initiative to improve the health of local kids. This year, in the Puget Sound, YMCA will fit kids with free bicycle helmets. The goal is to give away 10,000 helmets.
Fittings run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 29. There will be fittings at the Mel Korum Family YMCA, in Puyallup, and the Morgan Family YMCA, in Tacoma.
Proper fit for a bike helmet is important for kids. If you can’t make it to the event to get fitted, here’s some tips courtesy Kaiser Permanente.
For Healthy Kids Day, Kaiser Permanente partnered with professional women’s cycling team Team Thrive and more than 250 volunteers for the fittings.
