Rochester Police teamed up with Mayo Clinic’s trauma department at Homestead Park at 1 p.m. to help kids learn about bike safety.
The event is part of Cops and Kids Community Bike Program that the Rochester police have been doing all summer. Their goal is to make sure kids understand the need for helmets, and build relationships in the community.
An injury prevention specialist from Mayo Clinic’s trauma center also joined in on the event to help educate on bike safety. She wants to remind riders that even the smallest crash, including just falling, can cause neck head or even brain damage and that you should always wear a helmet.
