This event was hosted by Alpaugh Elementary to celebrate the end of the school year; kids got to enjoy water slide, and multiple fun booths! TCAG partnered with Alpaugh Elementary to provide important bike safety lessons. 60 helmets were distributed and properly fitted to students. Hundreds of reusable bike lights were given to children who answered bike safety questions correctly. Overall it was a very successful event that reached hundreds of kids in the community of Alpaugh.
TCAG staff helped support a local Cub-Scouts bike rodeo in the City of Tulare on May 20th. The event featured obstacle courses for children, a helmet safety demonstration, and a “Slow race,” where kids try to ride their bike as slow as possible in a straight line without letting their feet touch the ground. Whoever gets there last wins! The Tulare City Police Department also showed up to educate children about how to ride safely. Helmets were offered by TCAG which were obtained by a grant to children who needed one.
On Friday, December 16, TCAG Staff presented over 200 students, at Cutler Elementary, with a Bike Safety Demonstration and Helmet giveaway. Over 20 helmets, along with other give aways, were passed out to the students!
