This year marks the 10th anniversary of our annual Wheels ride. We have BIG plans this year, and BIG goals.  Whether you are a novice rider or a seasoned cyclist, we hope you’ll join us to celebrate 10 years of incredible achievement for children with medical complexities in our community.  Join us on Sunday, June 21st as we ride through the gorgeous roads of the Niagara Escarpment to raise funds in support of medically complex children and their families.  All routes (25km, 50km & 100km) include a stop at the Home to see first hand the impact you will make on our children.      

Since its inception in 2011, Wheels has raised over $900,000 in support of capital projects and the core programs offered at The Darling Home for Kids.

Where Your Dollars Go

Past projects have included:

  • Building of a wheelchair accessible playground
  • A tranquil therapeutic sculpture garden
  • Clubhouse for the kids
  • Renovations to a respite bedroom
  • Expansion of our office space
  • Purchase of a wheelchair accessible van
  • Installation of a new Rhapsody bathtub and hygiene chair

We’re heading into an exciting time at The Darling Home for Kids as we grow our Home to welcome more children and families into our care. Our capital campaign is the most exciting and ambitious to date, and our Wheels riders and donors will play an important part in its success. All proceeds from the 2020 Wheels event will go directly to supporting projects within the expansion, including additional bedrooms, larger medication room, dedicated playroom, expanded parking lot and much more!

Thank you to our 2019 Event Sponsors

Presenting Sponsor

Mattamy Homes has been the driving force behind the Wheels event and it would not be the success it is without their support. We are pleased that Mattamy Homes continues to share in our vision.

Saddle Sponsors

The bike seat, where you sit while your legs spin away, holds up the rider. Our generous sponsors will support all our riders.

Drivetrain Sponsors

A bicycle’s drivetrain is the mechanical system that converts a cyclist’s pedaling power into forward movement. The involvement of these sponsors will drive us forward to reach our goals!

Special thanks to our creative & print partners for their continued support.
