Wishes on Wheels, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)(3)
organization made up of passionate and hardworking volunteers
committed to a shared goal - to organize a family-friendly truck
convoy and event to bring together families, friends and community
members to support children with life-threatening medical
conditions. Dozens of local Wish Kids look forward to Wishes On
Wheels as an annual tradition that simply can't be missed. Many
of the truck drivers volunteer to have Wish Families ride along
with them during the Convoy. When the Wish Kids arrive, they
carefully select the truck they will ride shotgun in during the
Convoy or search until they find "their truck" from the previous
year. Upon return to Rentschler Field in East Hartford, there is
more fun, food and festivities to help raise money for this
This is our 17th Anniversary, last year we raised over $100,000
for Make-A-Wish Connecticut. In 2014, we had become the first
external fundraiser in Connecticut to break the 1 million dollar
goal we had set for ourselves!!
Last year we had over 525 trucks in our Convoy, even with the
threat of a rainy day. Our event is a rain or shine event.
The 2016 Wishes On Wheels Convoy
will be held at:
615 Silver Lane, East Hartford, CT
on September 11th, 2016
This years theme is: "HONORING OUR FIRST RESPONDERS"
