Lids for Kids is an annual bike helmet giveaway and bicycle safety event for children and their families. Lids for Kids emphasizes the importance of bike-riding safety and gives children the one tool they need to prevent brain injury: a properly fitted helmet. Volunteers are on hand to custom-fit every helmet. In addition to getting a free helmet, children who attend Lids for Kids can register to win a new bicycle and other fantastic prizes, can meet local firefighters and tour a fire engine, play games, and meet Sparty and The Big Lug (both will be attending at different times). Since Lids for Kids first began in 2003, more than 7,600 bike helmets have been handed out and properly fitted on Michigan children.
