Used helmet donations?

Postby Dan Chambers on Fri Jul 15, 2011 7:08 am

While I know The Club has a strict policy about the age of helmets, I was wondering about possibly donating a 10-year-old helmet to organizations that might be able to use them?

My thought was this: if there is a youth group, or a kart club or educational clinic ... maybe a Geriatric-Harley Rider's club ... that uses helmets and could use a sanitized open or full face helmet, why not give it to them instead of just throwing the helmets in the waste-can?

Any ideas out there? Someone in the club recommended I find a friend with a sub-ten-year-old-learning-to-ride-a-bicycle type child and give it to them. I'm not sure I want an 8-year old bicycling around in a full-face helmet with limited peripheral vision. :shock:

So, if you have any thoughts on what to do with a couple of 2000-dated open face and full face helmets (between Monica and I, that's 4 helmets), let me know.

We talked about this a year ago.

I don't think the answers are any better today

Tim Commeau has some friends in the Mexico Race groups. I am sure they would love those helmets and old harness or window nets.. Might score some tequila or something in return??
But making it usfull is always part of my end game, like you said.. They are good people who love to race, but often the safty stuff comes last, and I''m sure could use extra/old gear..
