Radio Flyer & Starlight

Join Radio Flyer in delivering the Hero Wagon to hospitalized kids

Together, Radio Flyer and Starlight teamed up to design the ultimate wagon for hospitals - the Hero Wagon.

When a child has to be placed in a wheelchair, it can be scary to young patients and they may be worried about where they are going in it. That is where these wagons come in: they transform a hospitalized child's experience by replacing a wheelchair with a more magical way to move around the hospital.

Generations of kids have played with Radio Flyer's iconic red wagons in driveways, down neighborhood streets, at parades or even at the beach, but few of us know that Radio Flyer Wagons are also a critically important resource for improving the health and wellness of young patients.

Doctors, nurses, child life specialists, and caregivers across the US rely on Radio Flyer Wagons every day as an integral part of a child's pediatric care - and now, the Hero Wagon will be able to make an even larger impact.

What makes the Radio Flyer Hero Wagon so special?

  • IV pole attachment for easy mobility within the hospital.

  • Folds flat and securely locks in a folded position for easy storage.

  • Medical-grade vinyl fabric that easily wipes clean.

  • Seat belts for safety while kids are in the wagon.

Give today to help deliver the Hero Wagon and other critical Starlight programs to hospitalized kids across the country. 

What Lucy liked most about the Radio Flyer wagon is that it allowed her to go out on 'walks' when she wasn’t strong enough to walk herself.

About Our Partnership

Since 2001, Radio Flyer has supported Starlight's mission of bringing joy and comfort to hospitalized children and their families by donating more than 15,000 of its iconic red wagons to children's hospitals and other healthcare facilities across the country.  

Children diagnosed with a serious illness or injury are often scared, lonely and endure long periods of hospitalization and painful medical treatments. That's where Starlight and Radio Flyer come in. Together, we turn a child's pain, fear, and stress into laughter, fun and joy. We believe that every child deserves to experience the wonder and magic of childhood.

Radio Flyer Hero Wagons help make a child's hospital stay a little more comfortable.
