September 26 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm

RideSafe Powered by BRP in partnership with Nationwide, will be hosting a fun, engaging event bringing K-12 students together for an inspiring and informative educational opportunity on how to safely operate ATVs and UTVs.

Date: 09/26/2024 (Thu.)
Time: 7:00AM – 4:00PM CDT
Location: Iowa State Fairgrounds, Jacobsen Arena
3000 E Grand Ave
Des Moines Iowa , IA 50317

We recognize that the agricultural community relies heavily on ATVs and UTVs both on and off the farm. Therefore, our event will have a special agriculture spin, addressing the unique needs and challenges faced by those in the ag industry.

ATVs are the leading cause of fatalities for children on America’s farms.

  • In the United States, 1 in 5 related fatalities is a child under the age of 16.
  • In 9 out of 10 incidents, the victim is not wearing a helmet.
  • In 95% of cases, the victim had not received safety certification.
  • 40,000 to 55,000 children are estimated to be treated in an emergency department for OHV injuries involving each year in the United States.

RideSafe, our athlete influencers, and our partners are committed to making sure children get the message— and aim to educate on safety, etiquette, and the environment.
