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 important cause.
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
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.
