Bikers Raise $2.3 Million for Hospital


610 bikers raised over $2.3 million for the Alyn Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Hospital over the past week as part of the annual “Wheels of Love” bike-a-thon.  Bikers rode from Tiberias to Jerusalem.  Each rider was given one patient’s profile and photograph as motivation, and met “their” patient in a closing ceremony at the hospital.

The Alyn hospital treats children with a variety of physical disabilities.  The hospital is not sponsored by the government.
