SANDY, Utah -- Traumatic brain injury survivor Daniel Mollino is making stops across the country to educate children about helmet use and preventing a head injury, and his latest stop was at Sprucewood Elementary School in Sandy.

Mollino said he hopes his message sinks in as children watch a video explaining what can happen if you don't wear a helmet.

The cyclist is working with Kessler Foundation, a public charity, to make his country-wide bike ride to raise awareness happen.
