Since 1996, UCP Wheels For Humanity has helped over 44,000 children and adults living in the poorest of conditions, in developing countries such as Zimbabwe, Vietnam, Ukraine, Mexico, Mongolia, and many others. Last year, the Rock To Roll benefit concert at Slims in San Francisco raised $23,000 for UCP Wheels For Humanity. Combined Rock To Roll fund raising efforts have raised over $100,000 since the annual event began in 2006. The average wheelchair costs $150 to refurbish, which means Rock To Roll has directly improved the lives of roughly 670 individuals in need.
Previous years have featured a variety of bands, from Against Me! and Mike Ness in 2006, Bouncing Souls and Flogging Molly in 2007, Alkaline Trio and Gaslight Anthem in 2008 and NOFX and Dead To Me last year.
