MEDIA ADVISORY - Krown Rust Control on a mission to wash record breaking number of cars for charity

Canada-wide car wash in support of Children's Wish Foundation of Canada

TORONTO, June 5, 2017 /CNW/ - On June 17, 2017 Krown Rust Control, Canada's number one rust protection company, will attempt to break the world record for the most vehicles washed by an organization in one day for Krown's Wash for a Wish Charity Car Wash. Last year Krown washed over 4,600 cars – a company best! This year all participating Krown locations are geared up to break the 6,277-car record and raise money for Children's Wish Foundation of Canada in the process.

For $10, Canadians will receive a hand-washed cleaning of their car with 100 per cent of donations going to Child's Wish located across Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces.

About Children's Wish Foundation of Canada:

Children's Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children's Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to nearly 25,000 children and their families – that's three wishes each and every day, all year long!

Children's Wish has chapter offices and professional staff in every province, and each wish family is assigned a dedicated Wish Coordinator who is able to personally and carefully structure each heartfelt wish experience to meet the particular needs of the child and their family. Travel wishes include all siblings 21 years and under living in the same household, and families travel worry-free thanks to exclusive Blue Cross insurance.

Our newly expanded reach, which includes children diagnosed with a serious neurological or genetic illness, means continued strong wish referral support through our medical community. Wish referrals continue to increase year over year, and we are proud to maintain our 'no waiting list' policy, thanks to our generous donors.

Now more than ever, we are encouraging Canadians to donate and support Children's Wish Foundation of Canada. Help us grant the next single-most heartfelt wish. Visit for more information and to donate.
