STRAP YOURSELF IN! WHEELS FOR WELLNESS HITS THE ROAD SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2019.
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 mental 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 after-party, and all about the kids.
Teams start the day at the starting grid where they will receive their driver’s package and complete their first challenge. 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 where 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 4th annual Wheels for Wellness winning team.
The organizing committee of Wheels for Wellness plans to raise an estimated amount of $272,250 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 $87,375.
