And, The Salvation Army will partner with Ada Bike Shop and Girl Scout Troop 3381 to give-away 500 bicycle helmets in order to highlight the importance of bicycle and other wheeled-sports safety.
The idea for the event came from Tom Plunkard, whose son, Josh, was killed riding his bike to a skate park on September 22nd, 2011.
The event, which is scheduled from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Fulton Heights Corps Community Center, will feature a helmet give-away, a prize drawing for four kids' bicycles, a bicycle safety course and a free bicycle safety inspection.
Additionally, The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services Mobile Kitchen will be serving refreshments.
The Fulton Heights Corps Community Center is located at 1235 Fulton Street (corner of Fulton Street East and Fuller SE) in Grand Rapids. The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
