Welcome to Wagon Day 2019
Going to the hospital is scary. Going to the hospital and having to ride on a gurney when you’re a sick little kid is even scarier.
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta strives to make their hospital as homey and fun as possible for their patients. Part of this means they use red wagons equipped with IV poles to transport patients to procedure rooms and treatments in various parts of the hospital. These wagons cost $100 to buy and equip, so the challenge is this:
In honor of those little red wagons and the heroes they transport, on January 28, we challenge each participant to raise $100 in a day to be able to fund a wagon.
Check out the video below for more information about our organization and where our fundraising dollars go.

Ask your parents to email your Donor Drive link to coworkers or family members that they may speak to more often than you.
Break your fundraising down into manageable increments. You can try:
