Helmet TriptychKohl's Cares logo 2

We are working to get more kids and teens into properly fit helmets through the Kohl’s Helmet Safety Program at Seattle Children’s.

In partnership with Kohl’s Cares, we travel Washington state providing free helmet fittings and giveaways for children year-round. We teach parents and kids how to properly fit every helmet we give away, but we don’t stop there. We also provide resources to teach you to fit helmets where you are, in the community or at home. In our eight-year partnership, we have properly fit and given away over 25,000 helmets.

Learn more about bike and multi-sport and ski and snowboard helmets.

Below is a calendar of when and where we will be in 2016 and 2017. Please note that we fit and give away helmets only at these community events. Unfortunately, we are unable to fulfill individual requests for helmets or provide helmet donations.

Please note that events are subject to change. It is recommended that you check back one month prior to confirm the date, time and location of a specific event.
