The 17th annual “Wishes on Wheel” truck convoy to benefit Make-A-Wish Connecticut – who’s mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy – took place on Sunday, September 11th, and DATTCO was honored to be part of this event again.
Each year hundreds of trucks (and buses) drive a route along I-84 and I-384 from Rentschler Field in parade formation, giving rides to the children benefitting from Make-A-Wish. DATTCO participated with our Trolley and a double-decker motorcoach. After the parade the kids and their families enjoyed an event with activities and prizes at Rentschler Field.
Frank Baio, DATTCO’s Senior Safety Director, who helps to organize DATTCO’s participation in the event each year said “DATTCO is proud to sponsor the mission of Wishes on Wheels, and all the hard-working volunteers in the admirable work that they do each year to bring joy into the lives of children across the state.”
