Wheels of Love

Wheels of Love is the Annual International Charity Bike Ride on behalf of the physically challenged children being rehabilitated in ALYN Hospital in Jerusalem. ALYN Hospital is one of the world's leading specialists in pediatric rehabilitation and is the only facility of its kind in Israel.
Every year, hundreds of riders and volunteers from Israel and around the world participate in a five days Ride all around the country.
This is an amazing project that, while not being related to my work, is one that I'm very proud to be part of.
