The Annual Car Rally began in 1990 when a group of dedicated volunteers decided they wanted to start a charity event to raise funds for The Children's Wish Foundation.
On October 1st 2019, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Canada joined forces with the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child across the country. Now as Make-A-Wish Canada, and thirty years later… after raising hundreds of thousands of dollars and countless wishes, that same group of volunteers is still going strong.
Thank you for supporting this year’s Car Rally and for helping to grant more wishes!
Now in it’s 30th year, this event continues to run in order to raise money to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Click the stories below to learn more about this year’s wish children.
The health and safety of all Make-A-Wish constituents, including our wish families, partners and supporters like YOU is our priority. This year, the Car Rally will follow guidelines and recommendations from national and local public health and government organizations to ensure that proper social distancing measures are in full effect. Taking on a slightly different form than the previous 29 years, this year’s Car Rally will still have the overall goal – to raise a spectacular amount of money to help grant more wishes than ever before, all while bringing together our Car Rally family.
Tips for an enjoyable event experience: dress causal and keep the weather in mind!
Please note that there will not be an overnight component this year. However, if you wish to book a hotel you will be fine to stay anywhere in the central area of Mississauga along the 401/407 corridor and between Dufferin and the 404.
Registration ends at 5pm on Tuesday, September 15th 2020.
