    I want to take part in the helmet distribution program for my family. I have 4 children who are in need of helmets. Is this program only for businesses?

      Hello, thank you for your question! Because helmets are distributed in bulk (quantities of 36) many participants are organizations, nonprofits and businesses. But anyone is welcome to complete an application!

      Thank you for your interest in our bike helmet program. Unfortunately, our application to request helmets is now closed. Due to the high demand of requests we receive, we have a limited number of helmets to donate but will add you to our waitlist.
