Mandi Nielsen

Mandi Nielsen has been volunteering at Wheels of Courage since the event first began.

“I love being a part of Wheels of Courage because it benefits a great cause. Cancer has hit close to me more than once and it’s tough,” said Nielsen. “If I can help someone who is struggling, even just a little bit, then I want to do what I can to help.”

Aside from participating in Wheels of Courage, Nielsen enjoys traveling to other car shows and showing her car and truck.

“We have met some awesome people helping at these shows. Truly some lifelong friends,” said Nielsen.

The 2019 Wheels of Courage Car Show is shaping up to be another record-breaking event. Although we expect a sellout crowd, you can still sign up, day of the show. You just need to be registered by 11 a.m.

The fifth annual Wheels of Courage takes place at Quaker Steak and Lube on June 22. Funds raised during the event will benefit the Jennie Edmundson Foundation Spirit of Courage Charitable Patient Care fund. This fund provides assistance to patients who need help covering expenses associated with diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
