Youth Challenge was one of more than 4,000 organizations vying for a finalist spot. 

Here's how it works: Youth Challenge will be one of five finalists profiled on the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page on Sunday, June 10, from 10 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern time. Voters are asked to choose which organization would benefit most from a new Toyota.

The top vote-getter gets a new Toyota vehicle. The runners-up get $1,000 grants.

Youth Challenge is hoping to win a Toyota Sienna Mobility, equipped with wheelchair access.

Mary Sue Tanis, founder and executive director of Youth Challenge, said the organization provided more than 5,200 van rides last year, which are given free of charge.

"A new vehicle would really be a game-changer in our ability to transport even more children with physical disabilities to our adapted sports programs," she said. 

You can also follow Youth Challenge on Facebook to stay up-to-date on what it's up to.
