LOGAN TOWNSHIP, BLAIR COUNTY - UPMC Altoona and Kohl's Department Store want parents to be "hard-headed" when it comes to their kids playing safely.

They're teaming up to help educate kids about wearing helmets anytime they're on wheels.  Employees fitted and gave away helmets Monday night to kids here in the Kohl's parking lot at Logan Town Center.  The "hard heads" program hopes to prevent brain injuries.

Last year the "hard heads" program gave away two hundred and fifty helmets here in Altoona in just 45 minutes.
