Wheels of Love ride ends successfully

18 November, 2012

Last Thursday, the Wheels of Love cyclists riding for the children of ALYN, arrived at Jerusalem, thus completing the last leg of the ride successfully.

In an emotional ceremony held at the finish line, ALYN General Director Dr. Maurit Be’eri gave a speech, stating this year’s cyclists underwent a “baptism by wind, rain and fire”. She explained: “Fighting against the wind was a good way to imagine what it is like for kids for whom simple tasks become struggles.” As regards to the rain she explained “Perhaps you felt the way a child does when suddenly his safe environment becomes a strange place filled with unforeseen pitfalls and threats.

“Finally,regretfully, you had the chance to experience what tens of thousands of children, able and disabled, who live in Israel, feel when the safety of the world is disrupted by rocket fire," she continued. "But you also had the chance to experience what helps the children pull

Through all these difficulties: love, support and mutual responsibility.”

350 cyclists took part in this year’s ride and on its last day were joined by an additional 320. Together, they raised nearly 2 million dollars for the children of ALYN.

Hospital staff and families would like to thank all those who took part in the ride, who road despite the elements and the rocket fire. T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U.
