on Mon, 04/17/2017 - 10:44

For a sixth straight year, Ottawa Public Health has partnered with sports retailers across Ottawa to bring Ottawa residents a discount on helmets.

Helmets prevent serious brain and head injuries by absorbing the force from a fall or hit to the head.

Helmets are recommended for activities like skateboarding, rollerblading, biking, sledding, skating skiing and snowboarding.

In Ontario, it is mandatory for anyone under the age of 18 to wear a certified helmet while riding a bicycle (Highway Traffic Act). Consider a cycling course in your community

Check out the following retailers between Saturday May 13, 2017 and Sunday May 14, 2017 to get your helmet discount: http://www.parentinginottawa.com/en/children/Helmet-Discount.asp
