Humboldt County Safety Fair
Humboldt Roller Derby celebrated the fourth annual Humboldt County Safety Fair at the Jefferson Project in Eureka! Helmets were given away to attendants and HRD provided materials and assistance for kids to decorate their helmets in the theme of HRD’s slogan: “Own Your Style: Be YOU, Be SAFE, Gear UP.” HRD also provided training on proper ways to stop and fall to decrease the risk of injuries.
