THANK YOU for a great ride in 2021!

There's still time to donate here!

McMains Children's Developmental Center will host the 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.

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 177 adapted bikes to children with disabilities since its inception in 2007.

Hear more about the program in Jairo's own words read by his son, Sebastian:
