Car wash owners hosts cancer fundraiser

Washing four wheels will help those using two wheels at a Ride to Conquer Cancer fundraiser Sunday.

The Car-Toons Car Wash at 19415 Langley Bypass is holding its annual car wash benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation.

Owner Donnie MacLeod has been holding the fundraiser for the past four years.

“We raised $3,000 in eight hours last year,” he said.

In the past he’s also got on his bike and rode in the Ride to Conquer Cancer but he won’t be available this year.

Like most people, his life has been touched by the disease.

“My wife, my dad and my dog died of cancer within two years,” MacLeod said.

He covers event costs, such as hot dogs and treats, so 100 per cent of the funds go to the cause.

Staff are invited to take part and most do come out to help.

The crew is rounded out by friends and family who volunteer at the event.

“I’ve even got ex-staff members who come out to help,” he said.

He has also enlisted support from others and has a silent auction.

Car-Toons has a dog wash as well, and Harvey’s Pet Food and Supplies will be on site with dog treats and samples.

The fundraiser runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The car wash is located behind Super Save Gas on the Bypass.
