On Saturday, May 7, community organizations pulled together for this year’s Bike Rodeo and Helmet Giveaway. Sponsors included Keith Nowland’s State Farm Insurance office, Eudora Police, Douglas County Safekids, The Eudora School District, the Eudora Volunteer Fire Department, Subway, the Douglas County Sheriff’s office, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, and Vitazest.
Safekids coordinator John Dees reports that the Eudora event has tremendous impact. “Last year, Eudora distributed 300 helmets, which is extraordinary when one considers that Lawrence, with a population of almost 100,000, distributed 500.” Five hundred helmets were available for distribution at Saturday’s event.
