For many years, Wheels has helped to raise funds for programming as well as important capital projects at The Darling Home for Kids including building of a wheelchair accessible playground, renovations to a respite bedroom, a tranquil therapeutic sculpture garden, a clubhouse for the kids, the purchase of a wheelchair accessible van and more. We have missed seeing riders pedal up our winding driveway for the last two years and we look forward to seeing you this June!
Sign up today to raise funds and help make a difference for families with medically complex children. Register to fundraiser for the 25km, 50km or 100km ride and join us in person at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre. If you're unable to make it out to ride with us on June 25, you can continue to support virtually by signing up and riding, running or walking at a time that works for you.
Individual Fundraising minimum: $200
Log your kilometers and together let's ride over 70,000kms in support of the over 70,000 children in Ontario who are classified as medically complex. Simply click on "LOG YOUR KMs" in the menu on the left and submit your kilometres (don't forget about your training rides!). This group challenge is open to both virtual and in person riders. If you are walking or running virtually, log those kilometres too! We'll keep track and see how long it takes us to get to that mark.
Since 2011, Wheels has raised over $1.25 million in support of capital projects and core programs offered at The Darling Home for Kids.
As the population of medically complex children rises in Ontario year over year, so does the demand for our services. When you support Wheels, the funds you raise will help provide a gift for today, and an investment in the future, for children with complex medical needs and their families. With your help, we will provide each child with the best care possible. They have beaten the odds to survive. Together, we can help them make the most of each day they have.
The Darling Home for Kids will follow public health policies with respect to COVID-19 protocols, ensuring the safety of all participants. All participants must self-screen prior to attending the event and follow current public health regulations, including adhering to social distancing recommendations. If you do not pass the self-screen and need to refrain from participating, your Wheels 2023 registration can be deferred until 2024.
