Columbia Community Partner

Vulcan Quarry Crusher Run Series showing our community love!

Supporting the community that surrounds each quarry is a key part of the mission for the Vulcan Quarry Crusher Run Series. In 2020, we’re excited to partner with Happy Wheels.

Happy Wheels makes rounds to each inpatient room, at all three SC children’s hospitals each week, with a cheerfully decorated surgical cart filled with new books and toys. Each child picks out a brand-new toy or book every week for the duration of their admission—they keep the gifts and take them home! Happy Wheels visits approximately 300 children each week, statewide.  The Happy Wheels experience helps turn a frightening hospital stay into a positive one. Happy Wheels is 100% donor-driven.  In 2018, we served 9,887 children.  Just knowing that a child fighting injury or illness can be whisked away into a world filled with magic and wonder, is a tremendous gift of encouragement for a child and their family.
