Founded in 2009 by a group of volunteers, the Ride to a Wish grants wishes to children battling life-threatening illnesses.
Although still in its infancy, Ride to a Wish is quickly gaining recognition as an effective grassroots organization that utilizes its network of volunteers, vendors, sponsors and donors to achieve great things. Last year alone, the Ride to a Wish Foundation raised over $100,000 to sponsor the wishes of children.
The Ride to a Wish welcomes all levels of donation, whether it’s a one-time gift, membership in our "All Smiles" Club or contributions to our events. Donations make a dramatic impact so that the Ride to a Wish can reach out to more families who just need one day to just smile.
Because our foundation is operated by volunteers and not employees, we can take a unique position. With no overhead costs and no employees, every penny raised is available to grant wishes.
