Helmets On Heads is a non profit that gives helmets of all types to the public at no cost and strives to spread awareness of the importance of wearing a helmet regardless the DISTANCE or TRIP TYPE!
71% of the time helmets are effective in preventing brain injury and death.
Teagen Tanner founded Helmets On Heads after she was in a very severe ATV accident in Homer, Alaska. She was riding as a passenger at a very low speed, going on a very short ride on uneven terrain when the ATV rolled. She almost lost her life because she was not wearing a helmet. She now has many scars on her head and face and a brain injury. Teagen started helmets on heads in 2015 only 1 month after her accident so that she could keep people safe and help them avoid what she went through.
We are very active in the community, speaking at the local schools and being present at safety expos while giving helmets away! We have no paid staff, all the donations go toward our mission. We want to build a culture of safety, as of May 15th, 2019 Helmets On Heads HAS GIVEN AWAY 614 HELMETS
2019 Safety Initiatives:
-Always buckle the chin strap
-Wheels don’t move until the helmet is on
-Never ride with a concussion or injury
-Always assess terrain
If you would like to donate money to the cause and help Teagen turn this negative into a positve, that would be a huge blessing!
