Krown Rust Control’s Wash for a Wish

Krown Rust Control raised over $34,000 for the Children’s Wish Foundation while attempting to break the world record for most car washes in eight hours at its second Wash for a Wish event on July 18, 2015. Over 3,000 cars were scrubbed with suds at 200 Krown locations across Canada, but the company was unable to beat the 6,277 mark set by Repco Australia and New Zealand in 2012. Krown president Freeman Young, however, felt the company is trending in the right direction, having raised $4,000 more than it did during its first attempt the year prior. Young believes they’ll surpass 5,000 cars next year and is aiming for 6,000 the following year. “Watch and see,” he says.
