GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- The Salvation Army is partnering up with Ada Bike Shop and Girl Scout Troop 3381 to give-away 500 bicycle helmets in order to highlight the importance of bicycle and other wheeled-sports safety.
The idea for the event came from Tom Plunkard, whose son, Josh, was tragically killed riding his bike to a skate park on September 22, 2011.
The Saturday event runs from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Fulton Heights Corps Community Center, located at 1235 Fulton Street (corner of Fulton Street East and Fuller SE) in Grand Rapids.
It also features a prize drawing for four kids' bicycles, a bicycle safety course and a free bicycle safety inspection. Additionally, The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services Mobile Kitchen will be serving refreshments
