On the morning of Sunday, April 15, 2018, McMains Children's Developmental Center will host the 10th Annual “No Such Thing As Impossible®” Bike Ride fundraiser benefiting Wheels to Succeed. Wheels to Succeed is a signature program of McMains Children's Developmental Center that provides specially adapted bikes to children with disabilities.

To date, we have granted 152 specially adapted bikes for kids with disabilities, and we are slated to give away our 150th bike at the event!

Adult cyclists can participate in a 10-, 40-, or 75-mile rideHow to participate for a $50 registration donation. Children of all abilities can participate in a free fun ride.

 

We will also have an adapted bike demo booth on site where children with disabilities may try out various styles of specially adapted bikes. 

This yearly event celebrates the life of Jairo Alvarez, a local businessman, author, and cyclist who was a passionate supporter of many children’s charities including Wheels to Succeed. Known for his award-winning autobiography “No Such Thing as Impossible: From Adversity to Triumph,” it was Mr. Alvarez’s vision that all children have the opportunity to know the joy of riding a bike, including children with physical disabilities. This vision is becoming a reality as the Wheels to Succeed program has awarded 145 adapted bikes to children with disabilities since its inception in 2007.
