Touch A Truck fundraiser

Beat Nb Southern California (formerly Max’s Ring of Fire) held its annual Touch A Truck fundraiser May 13 at Pacific Trails Middle School in Carmel Valley.

The 9th annual event is California’s original kid-friendly car show. Little drivers are given the green light to touch, sit behind the wheel and honk the horn to their little hearts’ desire in every type of vehicle imaginable, ranging from construction, emergency, off-road, delivery, hot rods, and military. One-hundred percent of admission ticket sales go directly to childhood cancer research and clinical trials. Visit

Touch A Truck San Diego is inspired by the life of Max Mikulak, who at age 3 was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma – a common yet difficult to treat childhood cancer. Max lost his battle with the cancer at the tender age of 7. Max’s parents, Andy and Melissa, celebrate his life and honor the gift of childhood by doing all they can to raise funds for and awareness about childhood cancer – which kills more children than AIDs, asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and congenital anomalies combined.
