Who are we?
We are a non-profit organization that accepts donations in order to buy bicycles, riding toys and safety helmets for children with life-threatening diseases.
Many times the parents of ill children are strapped with financial expenses and cannot afford things like bicycles. We see to it that every bicycle comes with
a safety helmet appropriate for the child's size. If a child is too young for a bicycle, another type of riding toy will be given. For children with physical
limitations we can also supply wagons or other appropriate wheeled toys.
How did we get started?
Cody's Wheels of Hope was started as a memorial to Cody Scott Filson(Feb. 12, 1999 - Feb. 4, 2004), who died of cancer eight days before his fifth birthday.
After giving his new bicycle away to another child at the hospital, a need was discovered by his family for more bicycles, for other children.
Who is eligible to receive a bicycle?
Any child, age 15 or under, suffering from a life-threatening illness and showing proof of the medical condition is eligible (condition subject to approval).
If you need an application for an eligible child, you may email us, send a letter to the P.O. box below, or click on the link on the left of your screen.
We are a 501(c)3 charity
and all donations are tax deductible.
Cody's Wheels Of Hope license plates are available. If you would like one please notify us. All we ask in return is that
you display it somewhere that it may be seen by others. If you would care to make at least a small donation to help cover
the cost of mailing, etc, it would be greatly appreciated!
