Durwood Mayfield, TBC Local Outreach Manager, and Sherman Phillips, TBC Local Outreach Coordinator, participated in Lubbock’s Safety City Kids Health Fair on Saturday, May 12. Approximately 300 kids and their parents visited the Texas Bicycle Coalition Safe Routes to School booth.
There, they received information on the importance of wearing a helmet while bicycling, the seven laws that pertain to cycling, and how to repair and maintain a bicycle. After the kids received a free helmet from the Texas Medical Association booth and signed a statement promising to wear it, they returned to the Safe Routes to School booth to have their helmets properly sized and fitted. The weather in Lubbock was perfect that day, and attendance was even greater than expected.
