Welcome to Paul Medeiros' Fundraising Page!
Friends & Visitors,
I am proud to be a part of the 2018 "Wheels of Love" bicycle ride benefiting ALYN Hospital, a Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Center in Jerusalem. This will be my second year riding in the "Wheels of Love" event. Last year with the generosity of my donors, I was able to raise $3,300.00 for the children of ALYN. Collectively amongst all the riders a total of $2,800,000.00 was raised. It was amazing to be a part of such a great experience, where people from around the world united to make a difference for a child in need of medical assistance. I would have to say the ride was the most difficult thing I have ever done as an individual. I finished in the back of the pack almost daily, yet even though I may have struggled with the steep climbs and rough terrain of the mountains, I felt honored to be there. My struggles were simple, my solutions were simple, ride, walk, rest and ride some more. My challenges were simple and short term. The children we ride for face constant uphill battles, yet push themselves in a tiredless pattern of betterment. Their rehabiltation could be weeks, months or years, but in the end a transformation will happen. I had the honor of riding alongside a former patient, who rode a tandem bike through the mountains smiling the entire way. He was giving back to the hospital that helped him recover so another child could be in his shoes someday. Absolutely incredible! On check in day, I was given a tour of ALYN, I got to see firsthand the work they do and how much they do with the limited resources they have. Imagine what they could do if their resources were doubled or trippled. I find it incredible that this small hospital not only helps Israeli citizens, but reaches out to neighboring countries and takes their children as well. No barriers, no hesitation, just open arms and a place to call home during their recovery. This is why I ride. This is why I am committed to this organization. My inspiration comes from these children and the amazing staff and leadership I call friends. Join with me! Together we can make a difference. Please note 100% of all donations go to ALYN hospital and are Tax free. Not one cent goes towards my expenditures for the event.
Love & Blessings
