Helmet Discount Weekend – May 5 and 6, 2018

For the 7th year, Ottawa Public Health has partnered with sports retailers across Ottawa to bring residents a discount on helmets.  Helmets can help prevent serious brain and head injuries by absorbing the force from a fall or hit to the head.  Helmets are recommended for activities such as skateboarding, rollerblading, biking, sledding, skating, skiing and snowboarding.  In Ontario, it is mandatory for anyone under the age of 18 to wear a certified helmet while riding a bicycle (Highway Traffic Act: https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/900610)

 The Helmet Discount Weekend is Saturday May 5 and Sunday May 6, 2018

 For a list of participating retailers, please visit the Ottawa Public Health website (http://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/public-health-services/helmet-discount-weekend.aspx.
