Riley Children’s Foundation kicks off License Plate Campaign
Riley red wagon license plates offer a visible way for Hoosiers to show support for Riley
Hoosier motorists can find Caleb Tucker of Greenwood, one of four Riley Hospital for Children patients, featured on billboards across Indianapolis from now until June 25, 2017. The billboards are to encourage motorists to put the Riley red wagon on their wheels.
Caleb was diagnosed with Wilms’ Tumor last summer. After months of chemotherapy, the 7-year-old rang the bell at Riley Hospital in February to celebrate his last cancer treatment. Caleb is a first-grader at Greenwood Christian Academy. He enjoys video games, crafts, church and spending time with his brother and sister. Caleb is proud to help Riley with this campaign. He says, “I want the kids to feel better!”
Riley plates are available for cars, trucks or motorcycles. A $25 tax-deductible gift goes straight to Riley Children’s Foundation with each plate purchase, raising more than $40,000 for Riley Hospital each year. Motorists can switch to a Riley plate at any time, even if the license plate is not up for renewal, and the BMW will prorate the fee. In 2016, 16,327 Indiana motorists across the state had a Riley red wagon specialty license plate.
Motorists can visit MyRileyPlate.org, or any Indiana license branch, and request a Riley plate.
