The following information was provided by the Watertown Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee:

As part of its Project KidSafe campaign, the Boston personal injury law firm of Breakstone, White & Gluck recently donated 100 children’s bicycle helmets to the Watertown Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee. The helmets were given away to children at Watertown Little League Opening Day, April 27, 2019.

Since 2013, Breakstone, White & Gluck and its Project KidSafe campaign have given away more than 25,000 bicycle helmets to children across Massachusetts. To reach children who need a helmet, Breakstone, White & Gluck has partnered with more than 40 organizations, police departments and bicycle committees.

Breakstone, White & Gluck started its campaign because many children are not wearing helmets, putting themselves at risk for head injuries. Under Massachusetts law, cyclists who are 16 years old and younger are required to wear bicycle helmets, while older cyclists are strongly encouraged to wear them. The Project KidSafe campaign urges parents to ride bikes with children and wear helmets together.

In 2019, Breakstone, White & Gluck is donating more than 4,000 bicycle helmets to children in Massachusetts, including to the Watertown Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee. The Boston law firm has made this donation each year since 2014.

Founded in 1992, Breakstone, White & Gluck specializes in helping individuals and families in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. The firm is based in Government Center in Boston and serves represents those injured by negligence across Massachusetts. Learn more about the Project KidSafe campaign: www.bwglaw.com/bikes.
