In keeping with trying to bring to the forefront all of the available Offroading Organizations around the states, I bring to you today Wheeling For The Lost. Wheeling For The Lost is a non-profit to help raise funds for the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children. If you know of an Offroading Organization that we haven’t featured yet, please let us know and we will add it to our list. Please provide the URL with your suggestion. If the site does not have a current website, give us some background information on it and address and we will get it posted.


Here is some information about Wheeling For The Lost from their founder Brian LaVoie:

In 2010 the idea for Wheeling For The Lost (WFTL) came to life when they held their first event in July. They raised just under $800.00, thanks to those who came out to support the cause and the companies that donated items for the raffle. WFTL donates 100% of the funds raised to the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children (NCMEC).

Founder, Brian LaVoie states, “Currently I handle the daily workings of the organization, but during our events the amount of volunteers seem endless. I don’t even have to ask for help, people approach me asking how they can help”.

Now in 2011 WFTL is in the planning stages for the 2nd annual Wheeling For The Lost trail run event in New Durham, NH. No date is set in stone yet, but will be on their Facebook community page once it is finalized.

The next scheduled fund raiser is at the AllThingsJeep.com 4th annual Go Topless Day event. This is being held at Oak Ridge Farm Stand located at 1543 Lunenburg Road, (Route 70) Lancaster, MA on May 14th, 2011. There will be FREE Child ID kits, literature on child safety supplied by the NCMEC, along with the Wheeling For The Lost 4×4 rig.

WFTL are in talks at this time with the folks at VERMONSTER 4×4 to have a booth set up at their 6th annual Spring Mud Fling in Bradford, VT. Their event is mother’s day weekend May 7 & 8. (This is geared toward fans of Mud Runs & Monster Truck World Record Stunts!)

WFTL looks forward to making new friends on Facebook where you can stay up to date on our events along with viewing profiles and photos of Missing Children.

  1. What a super idea for a more than worthy cause. It’s a problem that seems to be getting worse. I have to believe that as word spreads, this event will grow. We all have to do our part to protect our children. There is truth in the idea that it takes a village to raise a child.

  2. That’s a long ways for most people to travel. I was wondering if there are ways for other clubs to support this club’s events without actually going there. Maybe even have the event on the same day, just in different parts of the country. Most clubs do some type of community service anyway. That would be an awesome thing to behold and the money raised could be considerable. Just a thought to ponder.

  3. We’ll be attending the GO TOPLESS DAY event and will be getting one of the free Child Id Kits for each of our 3 children. People tend to think that this will not happen to their children but their safety is never a certainty. Our children are 3 months, 2 years and 3 years of age. We would be totally devastated if any of them were to go missing. I can’t even begin to imagine what that would be like. The NCMEC does tremendous work and they deserve all of the support that we can give them.

  4. I can’t even begin to understand the terror of someone taking one of my children. The hospital where they were born gave us id kits for each of them. I hope I will never have to use them, but I feel better just knowing that they are there if I need them. My friends thought I was nuts when I told them about it. I just hope they never have to regret not having them. I’m a firm believer in better safe than sorry, especially when it comes to the kids.

  5. You can mail them a donation by check and put “WHEELING FOR THE LOST” in the memo line.

    Also, the location has changed to 580 Mountain Road, Jaffrey, N.H. 03452

    I was just told by the folks at ALLTHINGSJEEP.com, they plan on having 1000 jeeps there so they moved it to a larger location.

    Sorry to all who this affects.

  7. I’m a sap for a good cause and when it can be paired with my off road Jeeping I consider it the best time I could possibly be having. We certainly need to take care of the children. I have 6 of my own and would be devastated if one of them were abducted. It’s a worthy cause and one I feel good about being involved in.
