Free bike helmets offered to kids

Kids planning to ride a bicycle to school can get a free bike helmet from the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida. Head injuries are a leading cause of epilepsy and seizure disorders. An estimated 42,000 people a year die from seizure-related injuries. The program is supported by a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation, which estimates that every $1 spent on helmets saves a person $30 in health care costs. For information about the free safety helmet, call 1-877-53EPILEPSY, or visit www .epilepsy.org.
