WE DID IT!
Thank you for helping us reach our 2020 goal of $18,000!
Our mission is to be HEADS ABOVE THE REST and provide 3,000 helmets to children in low income families throughout San Antonio in 2020.
Ian’s Foundation was formed in memory of Ian Fincke to advance the safety and welfare of San Antonio’s youth. To date over 1,500 helmets have been distributed in Ian's memory.
Ian’s death was the result of a traumatic brain injury sustained during a skateboarding accident. We are passionate about preventing accidental trauma injuries in San Antonio.
Commit to Wearing a Helmet every time you are on a bicycle, scooter, roller skates, roller blades, and skateboards
No one wants to attend the funeral of a child…..especially a death that could be prevented. It is our hope to increase helmet safety awareness in San Antonio and the surrounding areas and through education and the media that we expose the youth to the consequences of accidental trauma and help them make wise choices to engage in activities and behavior that will prevent future accidents and keep our youth safe.
What IF more kids wore helmets?
Skateboarding injuries send 26,000 people to emergency rooms each year in the United States, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Children can suffer severe injuries when they fall from a skateboard.
Bicycle injuries account for more than 300,000 American kids each year going to the Emergency Room. Some injuries are minor, but some children sustain head injuries or broken bones.
