Kohl’s Safety Program at Seattle Children’s

Children in helmets and life jackets

Kohl's Cares logo

In partnership with Kohl’s Cares, we travel Washington state providing free helmet and life jacket fittings/giveaway events and educational demonstrations with our outreach team. We teach parents and kids how to properly fit every helmet and life jacket we give away, but we don’t stop there. We also provide resources to teach you to fit safety devices where you are, whether in the community or at home.

See below for the dates and locations of our free giveaway events this year.

Getting the Proper Fit

A helmet won't protect your head if it doesn't fit correctly. Learn how to properly fit safety devices with your family. For instructions and additional tips, visit Bike and Multi-Sport Helmets: Quick Fit Check for helmets and Life Jackets for Children and Teens for life jackets.
