Children's Foundation to improve the hospital stay of youth and
Radio Flyer has been helping Starlight Children's
Foundation brighten hospital hallways since 2001 through the
donation of more than 6,000 wagons to hospitals throughout the
United States and Canada.
Hospital personnel can use the classic wagons in place of
wheelchairs or stretchers to transport children to and from
surgeries, treatment rooms and playrooms. The wagons help to make

Serving more than 60 million children and their families since
inception, Starlight Children's Foundation is a global children's
charity that offers various programs that focus on children's
