Toyota of Orlando may be a car dealership, but cars aren’t the only things important to us – we take pride in being a part of the Central Florida community and giving back! This is why we pair up with amazing non-profit organizations like Camp Boggy Creek, which is a camp for children with serious illnesses. In the past, Toyota of Orlando has held supply drives to collect donations to help Camp Boggy Creek thrive. Now, our Toyota dealership in Orlando is taking our relationship with this organization further and sponsoring the 4th annual Challenge Ride!
Camp Boggy Creek hosts Challenge ride to help sick kids
Camp Boggy Creek is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving seriously ill children the chance to experience the joys of camp. With the help of this camp, these children suffering from illnesses, such as cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, epilepsy, severe asthma, and others, are able to have fun in a medically sound environment with other kids just like them!
Camp Boggy Creek is funded wholly on donations and these children attend this camp free of charge, as medical bills can be a huge burden already. This is why fundraising events are so important to this organization. The goal of the Camp Boggy Creek Challenge Ride is to raise $225,000 to help this camp continue to touch the lives of Children like Jerry, our team Champion.
Jerry is just nine years old and was diagnosed with cancer. Before this diagnoses, Jerry was a lively child who loved playing with his seven siblings. Before he knew it, he was trading in his play time for cancer treatments. It wasn’t until Jerry visited Camp Boggy Creek for the first time that he was able to experience what it was like to laugh, play and be a normal kid again. He was finally able to participate in exciting activities like sports, swimming, fishing, and his personal favorite, archery! He was also able to hang out with other children just like him and make life-long friends without worry.
