This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

As the weather gets nicer, more and more kids are out riding their bikes - and some aren't wearing a helmet properly or at all.

Dr. Stephen Bloom, director of the Brain Injury and Concussion Programs at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, and a survivor of a car-bike crash where a helmet saved his life, is helping with the Lids for Kids program.

The 2nd Annual Lids for Kids is Saturday, May 30 from 10:00am until Noon at Garfield Park at Madison and Burton SE.  The event includes a bike helmet giveaway for kids ages 4-12.
