Krown Rust Control aims for world record car wash to support Children's Wish

TORONTO, July 13, 2015 /CNW/ - Car washes will be held across the country on July 18, 2015 by Krown Rust Control in an effort to raise money for the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada and to set a world record for the most vehicles washed by a single organization in one day.

For $10, Canadians will receive a hand car wash at the second annual Krown Wash for a Wish Car Wash at any participating Krown Rust Control location across the country. One hundred per cent of money raised will be donated to regional chapters of The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada.

"The real reason for this event is to give back to our community and support families in need. While we're aiming to break the world record for the most cars washed in a single day, we know the event will be a success as all of the funds raised will be going to a great cause," says Freeman Young, President of Krown Rust Control. "Our staff across the country are excited for our annual charity car wash. We've been planning this event for the past year and we're ready to wash for a wish."

Children's Wish is a charity that helps Canadian children, families and communities by granting the favourite wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Last year, Krown raised nearly $30,000 for the charity and washed over 3,000 cars. Currently, the world record for the most cars washed in one day is 6,277.

"Krown knows the magic of a wish and with the support of Canadians we can help to create moments of joy that ease the pain of children diagnosed with a life-threatening illnesses," says Anjie Dietrich, National Manager of Corporate Development at Children's Wish. "I am always inspired by the generosity of our supporters and look forward to celebrating the success of this year's Wash for a Wish Car Wash."

The Krown Wash for a Wish Car Wash will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time at more than 200 Krown Rust Control centres across the country.
