WHEELS FOR THE DARLING HOME FOR KIDS
The 8th Annual Wheels cycling event, presented by Mattamy Homes benefitting The Darling Home for Kids was a waterlogged affair, but the rain didn’t stop participants who came out to cycle for children in our local community. 140 riders registered for 25km, 50km or 100km routes and received pledged support from family and friends for their efforts. Their hard work, combined with the generosity of our sponsors, raised (net) over $110,000!
This year’s proceeds continue to support essential programs and will also allow the organization to purchase a specialized Rhapsody bathtub and Miranti Lift system. A bathtub might not sound like much, but for some families the act of giving their child a bath can become near impossible, especially as their child gets older and needs a lift to get them in and out of the tub. Having a bath is a simple joy and one that improves the quality of life for children.
