The Wheels of Justice Cycling Team cut The Children’s Hospital a $192,852 check after 177 riders courageously cycled through the Rocky Mountains over the summer. A thank you reception on Wednesday, Nov. 11 at the hospital included the check presentation and a hospital tour for the attendees to see first-hand what their hard work and determination supports. Approximately 50 attendees were there, including riders, doctors and team sponsors. The event recognized the sponsors and all of the dedicated people who helped make the Wheels of Justice Cycling Team a big success for the fourth year in a row.
