The Big Wheel Rally is a fundraiser supporting Children's Cancer Connection (CCC). Participants ride Big Wheels (often dressed in costumes) down Ingersoll Ave in Des Moines, IA stopping at multiple locations along the way. You do not need to have a Big Wheel to attend and there is no registration or cost to participate. Donations, shirt purchases, and sponsorships are HIGHLY encouraged. All proceeds through shirt sales, donations, and sponsorships are donated to CCC. Last year's BWR raised over $40,000! Help us beat that this year???
