Let’s join Owen S. on his Eagle Scout journey and learn some great safety tips at the Cycle Safely FREE Bike Rally.

WHEN:  Sunday, October 4
                 1:00 p.m.

WHERE:  4-H McKee Building at The Ranch

Why is Owen doing this?…

“This project came to be after I was in a serious bike accident on the Spring Creek Trail. My front tire hit a hole in the pavement and I flew over my handle bars. The doctors at the ER said if I wasn’t wearing my helmet correctly, I would have suffered traumatic brain injury. While admitted in the hospital, I was given a new helmet. I want to make sure hospitals have replacement helmets. I would also like students to walk away with the tools they need to bike safely. My proposal was approved now on to creating a detailed plan.”

“My project has 2 parts. The first is a new helmet collection. WANT TO HELP?? Amazon has some great deals on helmets for all ages. Free shipping if you are Amazon Prime.Let me know through PM if you want to help me out and I will send you the address where you can ship the helmets. Don’t have prime? Want to make a cash donation for helmets? PM me for info on how to do that too. All money collected buys new helmets to benefit Strap and Snap and area hospitals.”

BRING YOUR BIKE AND HELMET! This event is for girls and boys grades 1-5. Each participant will receive a free t-shirt thanks to my amazing sponsors. Open to the first 60 participants.
