A few hundred people packed the MeritCare Children's Bike Safety Rodeo on Tues. July 10. Parents rolled in with kids of all ages on anything wheeled including bikes, scooters and roller blades. All arrived for the same reason, to help kids play safer this summer.

About a dozen MeritCare Children's associates checked helmets, fitted and sold new helmets at a discounted price of just $10 and taught kids how to ride safer. Island Park Cycles was also on hand to provide bikes a service check-up.

In the end Island Park serviced 65 bikes and MeritCare sold 40 helmets, 115 kids signed up for the bike give-away and 150-200 had their helmets checked to ensure they fit correctly. Many more scrambled through the course set up in the MeritCare Children's Southwest Clinic parking lot.

Each year children in our community are killed or injured while playing wheeled sports. Wearing a helmet correctly could save a life. Thanks to all the associates in MeritCare Children's for making this event a huge success!
