Local physicians to give away bicycle helmets to children

The Fort Bend Medical Society Alliance (FBMSA) and physicians of Fort Bend County want to help ensure the safety of area children by giving away free bicycle helmets on Saturday, March 2, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 pm at the WATCH your Wellness Health Fair at Sugar Land Town Square.

The FBMSA bicycle helmet giveaway is part of a statewide effort — Hard Hats for Little Heads — launched by the Texas Medical Association in 1994. The program promotes fun exercise and teaches parents and children about the importance of wearing a helmet. The event is sponsored by the Fort Bend Medical Society Alliance, in conjunction with the Texas Medical Association.

Texas physicians encourage wearing a helmet for all sports on wheels — biking, skateboarding, inline skating, and riding a scooter. And doctors want you to wear the correct helmet for your sport and make sure it fits properly.

“Wearing a bicycle helmet is such a simple way to help ensure a child’s health and safety,” said Nomita Bajwa, Pharm.D. President of the Fort Bend Medical Society Alliance. “We want to start summer right and celebrate WATCH Week in FBISD Schools in March by putting a helmet on children’s heads.”

Any child can receive a free helmet. Members of FBMSA along with local physicians will be on hand to properly fit the helmets. Safety presentations will occur every half hour with raffles for the bike helmets.

Head injury is the most common cause of death and serious disability from bike crashes. A helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by as much as 85 percent, yet less than half of cyclists wear one when they ride.
