Sports related head injury

Bicycle riding along South Carolina’s scenic roads and streets can be very enjoyable. But if you or your child does not wear a helmet, the chances of being seriously injured in a bicycle accident are much greater. Statistics from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety show that 9 out of 10 bicyclists who die in an accident were not wearing a helmet. Furthermore, only 50 percent of people who ride bikes wear head protection.

The South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association wants to change this statistic for the better. To accomplish this goal, the organization is targeting children to develop safe bicycle riding habits for a lifetime. After becoming aware of a lack of interest in wearing bike helmets, SCSCIA came up with a strategy that centered on getting children involved in helmet safety.

The organization created a helmet design contest at area middle schools in the Midlands. Emma Schaefer, a sixth grade student, won the contest with a design of a helmet with flames. The Spinal Cord Injury Association plans to incorporate the drawing into presentations to educate children on the importance of wearing bike helmets.
