I am the Riley wagon.

This week, I will see Thanksgiving in ways most people never do.

I will hear parents whisper prayers of tearful gratitude for Riley’s heroes.

I will see families enjoying turkey dinners in the hospital instead of at home.

I will roll down hallways past nurses, doctors and staff members who are spending their holiday away from their families so they can help children heal.

My dearest friends, as you celebrate this Thanksgiving with loved ones, know that your generosity is at work at Riley Hospital. 

For the way you keep my wheels turning day after day,

And for your generosity, which makes Riley a haven of hope,

I am grateful.

Warmest holiday greetings from,

Riley Wagon

Riley Wagon

The red Riley wagon is the preferred mode of transportation for many patients at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. She has become an iconic symbol of Indiana’s cherished children’s research hospital, which is entering a new phase of growth thanks to the tremendous support of donors.
