I work in the brain injury rehabilitation field in England and am researching information on Sports Related Acquired Brain Injury - helmet non usage in some sports is frightening! It is literally 'mind-blowing' to realise that an athlete would prefer good looks over safety.

I chose to dedicate my hour on the Fourth Plinth in London to try and make an impact on children, by demonstrating "Be Safe Not Scrambled", on 23 Sept 07.00

Cycle Safety and Children: Brainy Bear teches children why it is so important to wear a helmet during "Be Safe Not Scrambled" demonstration.

Fourth Plinth participant 07.00 on 23rd September, Wednesday dedicates her hour to raise safety awareness with 6 minute presentation.

'Brainy Bear' demonstrates what happens when both an unprotected egg and an egg protected by a helmet are dropped on the floor of the plinth. The results speak volumes!

Please visit, leave a message and mouse click "I like this Bit" to help raise awareness of wearing a helmet during activities/sports such as cycling to prevent injury!
