Summer is a great time for riding bikes and having fun outdoors. If you or your child are out riding, make sure everyone is wearing a helmet!
We created the Helmets & Heroes program to encourage kids to wear helmets when riding bicycles. Helmets & Heroes is a summer bicycle safety program sponsored by the Trauma One Center at OU Medicine in partnership with the Metro Area Traffic Safety Council (MATSC), Kohl’s Cares, The Childrens' Hospital Volunteers and area McDonald’s restaurants.
The program runs during the summer until Labor Day. Area police departments that are part of MATSC will be handing out “tickets” to bicyclists who they see wearing helmets. The tickets (coupons) are good for prizes. You can redeem the coupon for a free ice cream at any Oklahoma City area McDonald's stores and go to the web address listed on the coupon to register for a chance to win.
