"When my daughter was diagnosed, Wheels was there to comfort her. She built a relationship with the Wheels volunteers, she was so comforted by you all that she forgot all her pain. I am so grateful to Wheels for caring.”
Have you ever seen a child not want to leave a hospital because they’re having too much fun? At Aurora on Wheels, it happens every day!
Aurora on Wheels is an innovative program that provides a day filled with Aurora fun to children awaiting treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals. Volunteers wheel a rainbow trunk bursting with toys, games and activities right into many of our affiliated hospitals and change what could have been a bleak and depressing day into a day of camp fun!
Our Wheels program, which launched in 2009, currently brings fun to more than 2,500 children in 32 hospitals. Each Wheels location serves a large number of children ranging from toddlers to young adults. While the youngest are enjoying Legos, coloring and other age-appropriate activities, older children can participate in a lively game of UNO or intricate crafts. There’s even electronic devices available for interactive gaming.
If your child is hospitalized for any reason, we’re here for you.
Aurora Day Camp and Aurora on Wheels staff and counselors are available to bring Smiles into your child’s day with a phone call or FaceTime session!!
Our team is ready to virtually play games, read stories, craft and more!!
