For the past two years, Richmond Sports Radio 910 host Mike Maniscalco has sponsored a promotion which has provided over 300 bikes to area children through the Salvation Army Christmas Assistance Program. The program is known as "Mike's Bikes" and the bikes are donated on behalf of the giver's favorite college. Maniscalco then sings the fight song of the college that gives the most bikes.
This year, Richmond attorney Bob Battle has added something extra to the program. On behalf of his law firm, Robert Battle P.C., Bob is proud to donate high quality bike helmets to all the recipients of the bikes. Battle, who moonlights as a professional comedian, is calling his part of the promotion "Bob Battle's Bells of Christmas!" Bob would like to give a sincere thanks to Bell Sports Inc. for providing these high quality, National Consumer Safety Commission certified helmets at a discount price.
Through the personal injury area of his law practice, Bob Battle has represented clients who have suffered serious brain injuries on roller coaster rides and in car accidents. "A person who suffers a brain injury is changed for life," said Battle. "As parents, we should never let our children ride a bike or a skateboard without a quality helmet that fits and is worn properly."
