Strap yourself in! Wheels for Wellness hit the road Saturday, September 22, 2018.

Picture this: a one-of-a-kind fundraising event that combines the fun and exhilaration of a road trip adventure with unique activities and some friendly competition, while directly benefitting children’s health and wellness in your community.

The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Mental Health Foundation are proud to bring you this exciting opportunity. This full-day event is part car rally, part show & shine, part after-party, and all about the kids.

The day begins with a show & shine where participating drivers showcase their vehicles to the public. Guests will include many kids and families who get world-class care at the Stollery Children’s Hospital and vital support through the Mental Health Foundation.

Participants will then safely navigate to and through a series of Rally checkpoints at sponsor locations in the Edmonton region. There, they will complete a number of physical and mental challenges to gain points and move forward.

Once the kilometres have been racked up, drivers will motor to the after-party at a secret location. Participants, sponsors and other special guests will mix and mingle in style, and enjoy fine food and fun entertainment. And before everyone runs out of gas, we will crown the third annual Wheels for Wellness winning team.

The organizing committee of Wheels for Wellness plans to raise an estimated amount of $226,000 in support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Mental Health Foundation. Net proceeds from this year’s event will fund mental health support programs in our community and at the Stollery Children’s Hospital.

The costs associated with the event are not expected to exceed $98,450.
