Kids to get free use of helmets at rodeo
The Leeward Pilot Club will offer children free use of safety riding helmets tomorrow at the Gunstock Ranch rodeo in Laie as part of a "Save Your Brain" campaign.
The Hawaii Women's Rodeo Association and Oahu Horse Show Association welcome the program as a way to prevent brain injuries from children falling in horse sporting events.
The Pilot Clubs of Hawaii have provided the helmets as part of a brain injury education and prevention program.
Leeward Pilot Club was formed in 1993 to promote awareness of brain-related disorders, injuries and causes.
The nonprofit Pilot Foundation of Hawaii gathers resources to support programs of the Pilot Clubs.
