Our Lady of the Lake Children's Health Children's Developmental Center at McMains will host the No Such Thing as Impossible® Bike Ride fundraiser benefiting Wheels to Succeed. Wheels to Succeed is a signature program of the 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 children of all abilities have the opportunity to know the joy of riding a bike. This vision is becoming a reality as the Wheels to Succeed program has awarded 186 adapted bikes to children with disabilities since its inception in 2007.
