Our Toyota dealerships near Orlando also work with Camp Boggy Creek, which is a camp for children with serious illnesses. In the past, we've held drives to collect supplies needed to keep this camp running smoothly and the children happy. Now, Toyota of Orlando is sponsoring the 4th annual Camp Boggy Creek Challenge Ride, which will help raise money to fund this amazing non-profit organization!
Toyota dealerships near Orlando join forces with Camp Boggy Creek
Toyota of Clermont and Toyota of Orlando pride ourselves on the efforts we put forth to help our community. This is why we feel blessed to work with such a great non-profit organization like Camp Boggy Creek! It's a medical camp in which terminally ill children are able to go and experience the joys of a summer camp.
Within the medically sound environment provided, these children are able to forget about their illnesses and meet life-long friends! Camp Boggy Creek caters to children with diabetes, arthritis, Spina bifida, severe asthma, Sickle Cell Anemia and more! They're also funded completely on donations, which is why fundraisers like the Challenge Ride are so important!

Meet Jerry, our Champion!
Every cycling team that enters into the Challenge Ride is given a Champion to ride in honor of. Since Toyota of Orlando will be participating in the event, we were given Jerry as our Champion! Jerry is 9-year old with a large family, including two brothers, three step brothers and three sisters. He was a normal and vivacious boy until he was diagnosed with cancer and was forced to give up childhood activities for cancer treatments.
When going to Camp Boggy Creek, he was finally able to play and laugh again! Not only is he able to participate in some of his favorite activities like archery, he was able make friends that were just like him!
We want to do all we can to help Jerry and help Camp Boggy Creek touch the lives of many more sick children, but we need your help. Join us for the Challenge Ride - we look forward to seeing you there!
