Wishes on Wheels
The Largest Truck Convoy in New England and Fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Connecticut
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 important cause.
To date, Wishes on Wheels has donated $2 Million to Make-a-Wish Connecticut and our 2019 Convoy hosted the highest truck count yet with 671 trucks!
From all of us here at Wishes on Wheels, we would like to say a really big THANK YOU! 💙 Thank you to each and every one of you who came out to drive, volunteer, or support the cause. We couldn't have asked for better weather or better people to spend the day with.
Please know we will be back to work answering messages and posting raffle winners and new photos shortly. We are all volunteers and we need some time to recoup with our families after such a major event. We promise to keep you up to date soon, but we may just need a nap first.
