Sunrise Association’s In-Hospital Programs
The Sunrise Association Wheels programs are an innovative initiative that provides a day filled with Sunrise, Horizon and Aurora fun for children awaiting and during treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals.
Volunteers wheel a rainbow trunk bursting with crafts, toys, games and activities right into many of our affiliated hospitals and transform what can often be a difficult and scary day into a day of magical camp fun!
Where do these amazing trunks and the wondrous amount of toys come from?
Generous donors sponsor our trunks and provide an enormous variety of crafts, games and toys, all of which are used by our dedicated cadre of volunteers.
Our wonderful and caring team gives the gift of bringing happy distractions to our kids, and in return, receives the priceless reward of seeing big smiles on the children’s faces.
“Sunrise on Wheels is as important as the chemotherapy itself.”
– Dr. Lawrence Wolfe, Cohen Children’s Medical Center
