On the morning of Sunday, May 05, 2019, McMains Children's Developmental Center will host the 11th Annual No Such Thing as Impossible® Bike Ride fundraiser benefiting Wheels to Succeed. Wheels to Succeed is a signature program of McMains Children's Developmental Center that provides specially adapted bikes to children with disabilities.


Ethan is a bright 16-year-old who loves music and riding his bike every morning with his father. Ethan has been participating in Wheels to Succeed since 2007.

Ethan has always had weakness in his leg muscles, but riding adapted bikes has helped him grow stronger. He is now even able to walk around when his family takes trips to Disney World!



This yearly event celebrates the life of Jairo Alvarez, a local businessman, author, and cyclist who was a passionate supporter of many children’s charities including Wheels to Succeed. Known for his award-winning autobiography “No Such Thing as Impossible: From Adversity to Triumph,” it was Mr. Alvarez’s vision that all children have the opportunity to know the joy of riding a bike, including children with physical disabilities. This vision is becoming a reality as the Wheels to Succeed program has awarded 163 adapted bikes to children with disabilities since its inception in 2007.
