Zehr’s 2017 Helmets for Life campaign was a roaring success! This year we purchased over 100 hockey helmets for youth in the communities of Mitchell, Listowel & Central Perth (Monkton & Milverton). A special thanks to the staff of Dunnys Source for Sports in Stratford and Corleys Source for Sports in Listowel for their support in our initiative.
Zehr is proud to support Brain Injury Canada as our lead charitable organization. The goal of our Helmets for Life program is to raise the profile of Brain Injury Canada and increase awareness of concussions and brain injuries though education. Our hope is that through the helmets we purchase for youth in our communities and the promotion of the program, parents become aware of the seriousness, symptoms and signs of concussions and the work of Brain Injury Canada.
We can’t wait for the 2018 campaign as we look to incorporate more communities and give away more helmets!
