Bringing Joy and Support to Children with Cancer in the Hospital

Sunrise on Wheels: In-Hospital Program

Launched in 2009, Sunrise on Wheels brings the joys of childhood to children undergoing treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals. With the help of dedicated volunteers and a rainbow trunk brimming with toys, games, and activities, we transform what could be a difficult day into one full of fun and laughter.

Our Impact

Sunrise on Wheels has been a beacon of joy, hope, and caring, impacting thousands of children at hospitals in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington D.C.,(Horizon on Wheels), Atlanta (Aurora on Wheels), Israel and beyond. Our program serves a wide age range, from toddlers to young adults, offering age-appropriate activities that engage and entertain. The youngest can enjoy fun activities like Legos and coloring, while older children can engage in interactive games or intricate crafts.
