Providing helmets for kids

July 27, 2011

Editor:

The second annual BE SAFE Bike Safe Bike Ride was held June 25. On behalf of the Organizing Committee we would like to thank the sponsors, the local businesses in Harford County for their generous donations and gifts, all the volunteers for their dedication, the Karuse Family and friends, and a special thank you to all the 100 riders who made this event a huge success. Your commitment to helping us raise funds to purchase helmets for Harford County children in sincerely appreciated.

The goal of the Greg Krause Memorial Helmet Fund is to continue to make a difference in the BE SAFE BIKE SAFE Helmet Give Away for all children of Harford County.

We were able to give 193 helmets to the children who attended the Safety Bike Program held this past May at seven Harford County libraries. With the success of this year's ride we will continue the Helmet Give Away in 2012.

With the help of donations from supporters such as you, we will continue to teach our children to be safe and always wear a helmet while riding.

Thanks again for your generous time and support in helping us in our efforts.

Thomas Nichols

Chairman, 2011 Bike Ride
