Beaumont Children’s Hospital donates snow sports helmets to Pine Knob
Donation benefits area students participating in ‘School Ski Days’
Thanks to funding from Beaumont Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, the Pine Knob Ski and Snowboard Resort in Clarkston recently received 100 snow sports helmets for use by participants in their School Ski Days program.
Description: Students skiing for the first time
 Students from the Medicine and Community Health Academy at
Cody High School (Detroit) were the first to use the helmets.
Because of the recent donation from Beaumont Children’s Hospital, the daily rental fee for helmets for area students participating in Pine Knob’s weekday School Ski Days program will be waived.
Says Patrick Deibel, director, Pine Knob Ski School and coordinator of the School Ski Days program, “We’re grateful for this gift. All School Ski Days participants will now be provided with a helmet at no cost to use during their ski program at Pine Knob.”
Medical research has shown that helmet use in snow sports can reduce the incidence of head injury by up to 60 percent. Canadian researchers found that skiers’ risk of head injury fell by 35 percent with helmet use.
