ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - Medical City Arlington will be sponsoring a free bicycle helmet giveaway Saturday, March 24 at Cravens Park in South Arlington.

The bicycle helmet giveaway is part of an ongoing initiative 'Hard Hats for Little Heads' launched by the Texas Medical Association (TMA) in 1994.

Medical City Arlington is urging children to stay healthy while being active participating in sports on wheels. They will give away 300 helmets starting at 9:00 a.m. until all the helmets are gone.

“At Medical City Arlington, we are committed to educating and caring for the community,” said Siddhartha Rath, MD, Medical Director of Trauma Services at Medical City Arlington. “Wearing a bicycle helmet is such a simple way to help ensure a child’s health and safety.”

Since the program began, TMA has given away more than 30,000 helmets to Texas children.
