Wheels of Love: USA reflects AFAH’s perpetual mission to increase awareness and drive support for the innovative and life-changing work that ALYN Hospital has pursued for the last 90 years. 

100% of the donations raised by riders and the wider community will directly support ALYN Hospital’s ability to advance its ground-breaking research, develop customized assisted technologies, and enhance and improve therapeutic programs and treatment services for patients and their families.
