Join Cal's Angels, a leading pediatric cancer nonprofit, as they celebrate the return of the 2021 War On Wheels ride cyclists at Pollyanna Brewing & Distilling Co. from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 11.

Riders will be returning home after biking nearly 1,000 miles from Mount Rushmore to St. Charles, Illinois over the course of two weeks. Celebrate the riders return home by raising a glass to their return and fundraising efforts.

 

Money raised will go toward pediatric cancer research, wish granting and hospital programming -- including Cal's Angels comfort kits, which are available to pediatric cancer patients throughout the Chicago area.

Pollyanna Brewing & Distilling Co. is at 106 S. Riverside Ave. in St. Charles.

Cal's Angels kicked off the third annual WOW Ride on Sept. 29 at Mount Rushmore with Cal's kid, cancer survivor and 2020 Olympic silver medalist triathlete Kevin McDowell.
