February 16, 2023 - The Canadian Carwash Association, in partnership with the Canadian Spinal Research Organization, is pleased to announce the launch of the 1st Annual Car Wash for a Cure, a Canada-wide initiative that encourages car washes to fundraise over two days to benefit spinal cord research.

On March 31 and April 1, 2023, car washes from coast to coast will participate in this initiative through a variety of activities that promote community building, philanthropy and contributing to a great cause. Activities may include:
  • Car wash owner/operators asking their customers to donate spare change;
  • Owner/operators donating a portion of their sales over the two days;
  • Inviting their community leaders to participate and promote to their constituents;
  • Creating a fun/interactive activity that engages their customers in the fundraiser;
  • Promoting their involvement via social media;
  • Raising awareness of the Canadian Spinal Research Organization.

Did you know that almost half of Spinal Cord Injuries are caused by motor vehicle crashes? Road safety is a major priority to both the CCA and CSRO.

Please watch this video from Barry Munro, CEO Canadian Spinal Research Organization:

The Canadian Carwash Association encourages its members and stakeholders to participate in this initiative to not only give back, but to help contribute to a strong and resilient car wash industry. There is no fee to register.
