    The pictures are beautiful, the cause is wonderful, the exercise is necessary, and there were no problems, so this is a positive story, right?

    HELMETS ARE REQUIRED WHEN SKATEBOARDING UNLESS YOU ARE OVER 18.

    As an emergency room social worker, I look at these pics, full of happy smiling faces, AND NO HELMETS of any kind (other than on the bike police).

    I am so glad the event was a success. I am more glad that every participant survived without head injury. Perhaps next time the organizers will consider this issue.

    Also, per my attending MD, skateboarding without a helmet leads to falling down, going boom, coming to an ER via ambulance and getting an extremely uncomfortable rectal exam (it's one of the ways we check for spinal cord injury).

    HELMETS, PLEASE!!
