This past Thursday, Safe Kids Southeast Wisconsin hosted their annual “Winners Wear Helmets” event at State Fair Park in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. This event is aimed at helping children understand the importance of bicycle safety, and an essential part of this message is emphasizing the importance of wearing a helmet. More than 600 third graders from various Milwaukee schools participated in this year’s event, and all of them received free bicycle helmets that were donated by the Habush Habush & Rottier Charitable Foundation.
Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® has provided children with more than 100,000 bicycle helmets over the past 13 years. According to Robert Habush, Chairman of the Board at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, “We’d rather prevent injuries than represent the victims later.” In addition to donating helmets this year, the law firm also provided the event with several bicycle helmet fitters.
