Morrow, Ohio – Children and adults can get a free bicycle helmet, thanks to a joint effort between the Friends of the Little Miami State Park (FLMSP) and the Comprehensive Children’s Injury Center at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Bike helmets will be handed out from 10 AM to Noon on Saturday, July 10, at the shelter next to the train depot at 240 Main Street in Morrow, Ohio, right along the bike trail. Helmets will be given at no cost to anyone age 3 and older, while supplies last. FLMSP volunteers will help fit the helmets on each person and provide safety tips.

The supply of helmets is limited. Updates will be posted on the Friends of the Little Miami State Park FLMSP Facebook page, so be sure to check before heading to the park. The helmet giveaway is supported by grants of helmets from the Ohio Chapter of American Academy of Pediatrics and the Brain Alliance of Kentucky/BRIDGES.

According to, a properly fitted helmet can reduce the risk of head injuries by 45 percent. That’s why it’s very important for children and adults to wear one on every ride.

The Friends of the Little Miami State Park is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to maintain and improve the 50-mile Little Miami State Park paved trail. FLMSP works closely with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to preserve the park’s natural river setting while creating a safe, enjoyable experience for all trail users.
