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

All 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. 

ALYN Hospital does not receive government funding and depends on donations to help cover the financial gap between what it receives from referring agencies and the actual costs of delivering best-in-class and innovative interdisciplinary care. From diagnosis to intensive inpatient and outpatient treatment to ongoing support, ALYN Hospital’s ultimate goal is to provide children with disabilities the care and tools they need to live with the greatest amount of mobility and independence.
