Prochilo Brothers go the distance with Rally for Kids

The Prochilo Brothers Auto Collision sponsored vehicle, ready to roll for the Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup. The Prochilo Brothers Auto Collision team raised over $26,000 in support of SickKids.   

Toronto, Ontario — September 29, 2014 — They say a good deed is its own reward, and that’s certainly the case when the good deed is running a car rally/scavenger hunt with a celebrity navigator. Prochilo Brothers Auto Collision recently took part in the Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup in Toronto, in the process raising over $26,000 for children’s cancer research, treatment and care at SickKids. 

Sometimes described as a high-end scavenger hunt meets “Amazing Race,” the car rally features luxury vehicles moving from checkpoint-to-checkpoint to fill their goals over two days.
“Each checkpoint has different activities, fun things to do with the kids,” says Domenic Ieraci of Prochilo Brothers Auto Collision. “It’s a fun day, but you really find yourself thinking a lot about what these kids are going through, and how strong they are. We heard an 11-year-old girl tell us about how she’s had cancer three times, and how she beat it three times. You can’t help but be in awe of their courage.
The entire team came together to raise funds for the rally, with Adam Prochilo filling the role of driver. His celebrity navigator was three time NBA championship team member and sports broadcaster John Salley. Salley played for the Detroit Pistons, Miami Heat, and Toronto Raptors among other teams.

In total, the rally raised over $1.2 million this year for cancer research, treatment and care in support of SickKids Foundation. The rally events have now raised over $14 million during the past seven years.
“There’s so much these kids have to go through. They’re the ones we should all look up to,” says Ieraci.
