Free Helmets to Those in Need

Yellowhead County has built numerous parks and pump tracks in our communities. But we’ve noticed that kids aren’t staying safe while having fun.

Did you know that roughly 50% of Canadian kids aged 12-14 don’t wear a helmet when cycling? (2013/2014 Canadian Community Health Survey.)

FREE helmets are available for those in need! In return, just submit a photo of your kid(s) having fun and wearing their new helmet(s)!

To apply for a free helmet for your child, fill out our application form and bring it to our Yellowhead County office in Edson or Wildwood. For more info, call (780) 723-4800.

REMEMBER: Helmet use can decrease the risk of a serious head injury by as much as 85% and brain injury by 88%. There’s no excuse for your kid to go without a helmet.
