Event offers bike helmet fittings and giveaways

GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers, Bellin Health and the Center for Childhood Safety on Tuesday, Aug. 3 will team up to promote bike safety with a free bike helmet fitting and giveaway during a Green Bay Packers’ training camp session.

The event will take place from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. in the parking lot at Lambeau Field near the Oneida Nation Gate. For those who have helmets, representatives will be on hand to check sizing and make adjustments. The free bike helmets will be available for the first 400 children or while supplies last.

The bike safety event celebrates a Green Bay Packers’ time-honored tradition in which children bring their bikes to the Packers’ training camp and allow the players to ride the bikes back to the locker room.

Bellin Health and Center for Childhood Safety representatives will be on hand to fit and distribute bike helmets to children present for on-site fittings. Safety experts will educate children and parents alike on the importance of wearing properly fitted bike helmets.
