For the past several years, including this year, the Des Plaines Community Foundation had a presence at the Spring Fun Fair and Pet Parade at The Mountain View Adventure Center in Prairie Lakes.
The Foundation had a tent at the event and gave out 100 bicycle helmets to the first children who attended and needed a helmet. Bike safety checks, bike safety information and minor maintenance were provided.
Four Des Plaines softball players got together off the field to lend a hand preparing for the event. Maren Garnett, Lacy Argus, Mia Thomas and Makenna Delafeld helped unpack and prepare the bicycle helmets which were distributed to the children.
