BID FOR CHRIS JUDD'S HYUNDAI
The Carlton Football Club has teamed with eBay and major sponsor Hyundai this month to give the Steven Walter Children's Cancer Foundation a much-needed boost.
The partnership will see Carlton star Chris Judd's Hyundai i40 auctioned off through the online eBay service, with all proceeds going to the Steven Walter foundation.
Bidding for Judd's i40 sedan will start at $5,555 - a nod to the star's guernsey number - and the partnership is hoping to raise at least $30,000.
The winning bidder will take home the i40 with an engraved signature plate mounted on the dash, along with the guernsey Judd will wear when Carlton plays Essendon on August 24.
The first two years worth of scheduled services for the i40 will also be covered by Hyundai, and $2000 worth of accessories will be thrown in.
Registrations for the auction opened on August 1, and the auction will kick off on eBay at 8:30pm AEST on August 14. The auction will end during the Carlton v Essendon game on August 24, displayed on the big screen at half-time.

A Note From The Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation
The Steven Walters Children’s Cancer Foundation’s mission is kids seeing a 100 percent survival of childhood cancer through funding childhood cancer research.
The Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF) originated in 2001 as the Steven Walter Fund and was incorporated in March 2008 as part of a strategic plan to develop a significant long term fundraising capacity to benefit childhood cancer research in Australia.
The origins of SWCCF lay in the wishes of Steven Walter, a young man who died in 2000 at the age of 19 after an 8 year fight against cancer.
In his final days Steven wrote a powerful letter to his family and friends asking them to raise money for childhood cancer research “so that one day no other kid would have to go through what I’ve been through”.
