Since its launch in 2009, Touch A Truck has become an annual tradition for families throughout Southern California. This year’s event, which takes place Saturday, June 8, at Qualcomm Stadium, promises to be the biggest and loudest to date with even more vehicles, food trucks and young musical talent! If that isn’t reason enough to pack up the family mini-van, consider your admission to Touch A Truck is a donation to help kids fighting cancer. Money raised at Touch A Truck goes directly to childhood cancer research and clinical trials at Rady Children’s Hospital and 12 other hospitals across the U.S.
Touch A Truck showcases a massive collection of personal, commercial, recreational, law enforcement and military vehicles, and gives kids the unique opportunity to climb in and get behind the wheels of these larger than life vehicles. The event will also feature an amazing food truck row with more than 20 of San Diego’s favorite food trucks, plus two live music stages showcasing up-and-coming young talent, including Sabrina Lentini, Gavyn Bailey and the Chrome Jets. In addition, characters from Star Wars, Shamu and even the elusive Ronald McDonald will be walking the event and mingling with attendees!
Touch A Truck is presented by Max’s Ring of Fire. Max Mikulak loved everything on wheels. After he lost his hard-fought battle with cancer at the tender age of 7, his parents Melissa and Andy Mikulak of Del Mar wanted to honor his memory by holding an event that Max himself would have loved to raise awareness and money for kids’ cancer research. Since its debut, Touch A Truck San Diego has hosted more than 15,000 guests and raised nearly $100,000 to fight childhood cancer.
