Letter: Brain injury survivor provides bike helmets for kids

I would like to thank the people and businesses of Detroit Lakes for their generosity when I was in town fundraising for my "Helmets for Kids" program recently. The response was overwhelming. As a brain injury survivor and five-time cross-country bicyclist, I formed Helmets for Kids.

I give helmets to kids who need them, and tell why they should wear them, using my brain injury as an example. If anyone knows of any bicycle helmet needs or speaking opportunities, please let me know! I tell my story in schools, daycares, churches, hospitals, civic clubs, etc.

Thanks again for your generosity.—Mike Heikes, Fergus Falls
