CTN events help us remain on the road for our community’s most vulnerable citizens. Proceeds keep trip costs low for seniors and people with disabilities using CTN to access medical care. 2022 CTN served more than 1,000 individuals providing nearly 20,000 medical trips. We’ve done that because of you and friends like you. CTN Drives Community, YOU Makeit Possible!
Check out our 2021 Hop On video, nothing has changed except for the date!
Trivia 4 Trips takes place virtually over the lunch hour on Wednesday, May 4th, 2022.
Not a Star Wars expert? Fort Wayne facts and general trivia will be mixed in so everyone can participate!
Dine 4 Rides will be back in person this year at PFW International Ballroom (Walb Student Union) on Thursday, March 24th at 6:00 pm.
This year’s theme is Vintage Carnival and will be a fun and interactive event filled with food, drinks, silent and live auction, and plenty of entertainment! Vintage cocktail attire encouraged!
Funds raised tonight will help more people in our community connect to healthcare, community events, schools, field trips, and more through CTN. CTN is a non-profit transportation organization that empowers people of all ages and abilities to access our community. CTN’s mission is to ease the burden of transportation so that more people are able to maintain life-sustaining and purposeful connections in the community.
Your support means clients like Helen can use CTN several times each month so that her working children don’t have to take time off work. CTN keeps her independent. Mary Ann, another CTN rider, recently shared that CTN’s impact on her health has been 100%. “I wouldn’t know what to do without CTN!” CTN is “Driving Community”, but YOU make it possible!

It is hard to believe that six weeks ago we celebrated a virtual Dine4Rides with a fantastic trivia contest!
I hope you had a ton of fun and learned a little something about CTN, too.
We had a fantastic event because of YOU! Watch the video below to hear how we did and the impact you had on our riders!

Hop On takes you and your party to multiple breweries around Fort Wayne. CTN provides participants with circulator transportation between the breweries, allowing everyone to stay for as little or as long as they’d like! This CTN fundraiser is a fun way to give back to your community, enjoy our local breweries and meet new people all while CTN does the driving. Thank you for joining us, Cheers!

I wanted to send a brief thank you for your support this past weekend – either in person or in spirit. The 2020 Hop On Brew Tour presented by Premier Bank and First Insurance Group wasn’t what we expected when we started planning in January, but it was still a lot of fun. More importantly, we raised almost $22,000!
You may have caught the Journal Gazette article about our event. We so appreciate the coverage and promotion of the event and our mission to ease the burden of transportation in our community! We learned today that the Covid-19 pandemic isn’t slowing down. We know it will likely get worse before it gets better. We learned first-hand last April how dependent riders like Mary and Eleni are on CTN’s services. Because we remained open they were able to access dialysis and the food resources. We’re working hard to keep our riders healthy.
We are grateful to our sponsors for helping make this year a success! Especially for Premier Bank and First Insurance Group for stepping up as our event’s first title sponsor!! Thank you to BF Goodrich, PHP, and Silver Birch Senior Living for joining us as Tour Sponsors! We also appreciate Strahm Group, Truck Maintenance, Inc., Felderman Design+Build, and The GeRue Family for supporting us at the Growler level. Finally, thank you to Foxworthy Wealth Management for hopping on board as a Pint Sponsor! CTN is driving community, but you’re making it possible.
Most importantly, we’re grateful for YOU. You helped us maintain a safe and enjoyable experience by wearing masks, remaining in small groups, and spending time outside. All while making an impact on nearly 1,000 low-income seniors and people with disabilities. THANK YOU!
Be safe and stay healthy!

CTN’s 6th annual gala, Dine 4 Rides raised over $115,000! I’m still in awe of the response Friday night. I’ve rewritten this message several times, trying to find the best way to thank you for your part in Dine 4 Rides. So, instead of just thanking you, I’ll tell you what we can do because of you and friends like you. Because of the dollars raised Friday night, we’re able to provide almost 2,600 specialized medical trips. Because of you, Seth, Joshua and more than 300 other individuals don’t have to worry about their ride. If you missed Seth’s story, I invite you to watch it HERE.
THANK YOU to all 140 guests that attended the 2019 Hop On Brew Tour! Hop On proceeds increased 163% raising over $15,000!
For many of our clients CTN’s specialized transportation provides them confidence. Confidence, that they or their loved one can remain independent.
One of our youngest clients is 4 years old and his wonderful parents both work. They faced a huge challenge, how to coordinate their work schedules with Wesley’s mid-day therapy appointments twice a week?
They were beyond relieved when they found CTN to take “the wheel”! Having dependable, friendly transportation for their little Wesley has provided comfort and trust for their family.
Watch Karen and Wesley’s story to see how a ride changed their family.

CTN’s 5th annual gala, Dine 4 Rides raised over $93,000! This investment is making a difference in this community for the seniors, people with disabilities, low income families, children, and youth who need affordable, accommodating, and dependable transportation to open doors for new opportunities.
The number of individuals needing this vital service continues to climb. We will continue to build our capacity to remove more transportation barriers including more medical trips and work shuttles. Thank you for helping CTN sustain that momentum towards 100,000 trips this year!
