Free Children's Bicycle Helmets at Franciscan Hospital: Monday 6/11 at 2-5 pm

From the Boston Globe Sidekick (and A-B TAB Community Notes):
When we see kids riding bicycles without wearing a helmet, we become everyone's mother. Our "Hey, where's your helmet?" cry has been known to turn a few unprotected heads.

The good folks at the Franciscan Hospital for Children want to protect noggins, too, and today from 2 to 5 p.m., they will distribute 100 free bicycle helmets on a first-come-first-serve basis to kids from Greater Boston.

Bikers ages 5 to 11 will be measured for their headgear and also receive educational safety material. The helmets were donated by the Governor's Highway Safety Bureau. At other times, helmets are available for $5 by appointment.

Franciscan Hospital for Children, Pediatric Clinic, 30 Warren St., 617-779-1500.
