Each year through this brain injury prevention program OU strives to educate children and provide the safety equipment they need to protect their brains.
As part of our "You've Been Ticketed" partnership with the Sioux City Police Department and Sioux City Dairy Queens, Opportunities Unlimited's Gotta Brain…Getta Helmet Program is giving away a youth bicycle helmet each week until the end of August. Just follow this link to register to win this week's drawing!
In addition to the helmet give away - OU staff and local teachers provide valuable preventative curriculum to the children highlighting the importance of protective equipment during recreational and athletic activities. In 2014 through the “Gotta Brain… Getta Helmet” program, the Sioux City Blue Zone Initiative, and various giveaways, OU provided more than 350 bike helmets to children in need.
OU would also like to thank our generous partners, Scheels All Sports and Siouxland Cyclists who help make these programs possible.
While Opportunities Unlimited strives for excellence in rehabilitative services for individuals who have sustained a Brain Injury, we also promote education and prevention. The statistics regarding BI are quite shocking:
