OSWEGO, NY – Local youngsters learned safety tips they’ll use while skateboarding and bike riding during Oswego Health’s recent Skate Bike Ride event.

Staff from Oswego Hospital’s emergency room fitted more than 100 youths with free bike helmets.

Skate Bike Ride Winners Announced“This event has grown every year,” said Ellen Lafond, R.N. emergency department clinical manager. “And it is a great opportunity to promote safety and healthy lifestyles for kids.”

Those who attended Skate Bike Ride could enter into several drawings after they collected bracelets from five stations that each promoted an aspect of a healthy lifestyle.
