The Children's Wish Wheels 4 Wishes event brings together auto enthusiasts of all stripes including those who own the highest end sports cars, racecars, custom hot rods, modern day tuners, trucks and more. In an action packed 5-hours children are given ride-alongs at top speed around Canadian Tire Motorsport Park's famed DDT circuit. All while in the paddock a show and shine and raffle takes place throughout the event, culiminating with a brief awards ceremony at the end. This is a great way to end the show and shine season giving back to the community by helping us provide a bright moment for these kids who face such tremendous challenges. We know once you see the smiles and joy this event brings that you'll want to be back year after year. We hope to see you this year!
The Children’s Wish Foundation is a uniquely Canadian charity that helps Canadian children, families and communities by granting the favourite wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. With every wish that we grant, we create moments of joy that ease the pain of a child, give respite to the child’s family, and connecthealthcare professionals and communities in that burning wish of hope. We’ve been granting wishes since 1984. Since 1984 we granted almost 25,000 wishes to children living with a life-threatening illness. Every wish is as unique as the child making it, from finally getting to cuddle with grandparents who live far away to hitting a puck with a favourite hockey player. In the often painful life of a seriously ill child, these wishes have made a tremendous difference.
