Randolph Police Department Receives Donation of 130 Bicycle Helmets
RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace is pleased to announce that the Randolph Police Department has received a donation of 130 bicycle helmets from the law firm Breakstone, White & Gluck for the fourth straight year.
The Boston-based personal injury law firm donated the helmets as part of their Project KidSafe campaign to encourage safe cycling and prevent head injuries.
Randolph Police will distribute the helmets to kids as part of its bicycle safety program.
“We want to once again give our sincere thanks for the generosity of the people at Breakstone, White & Gluck,” Chief Pace said. “Bicycle safety starts with wearing a helmet and because of their donation we are able to provide dozens of kids with helmets in Randolph.”
The Project KidSafe campaign was started by the law firm in 2013 as a way to reduce injuries and encourage children to wear helmets as soon as they start riding. Over five years, the lawyers have now donated more than 20,000 bicycle helmets to children in Massachusetts.
“At Breakstone, White & Gluck, we believe every child should be able to safely ride their bicycle while wearing a helmet,” Attorney David W. White said. “Each year we donate hundreds of brand-new helmets to police departments throughout the region that they then give out to children in their community. It was our pleasure to once again donate over 100 helmets to the Randolph Police Department.”
Massachusetts law requires children who are 16 years old and younger to wear bicycle helmets when they ride.
The Randolph Police Department encourages all cyclists to wear helmets no matter their age.
