For more than 100 participants, Friday night was a perfect night to celebrate bike safety.
Thanks to a partnership between the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbia Gas, and local police and fire departments, children from around the central Ohio area were recognized for their commitment to safety at Nationwide Arena.
The Bike Helmet Program, which distributes helmets to kids all throughout the area, is a staple of the community outreach efforts by the Blue Jackets Foundation. Over the past two years, Blue Jackets partner Columbia Gas invested $100,000 in the program, showing a commitment to kids safety that is at the core of the mission of the Blue Jackets Foundation.
