May 22: San Diego, Touch A Truck

Touch A Truck San Diego 2016

Max’s Ring of Fire – Touch A Truck San Diego

Sunday, May 22, 2016 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (PDT)

 

The most anticipated family-friendly, fundraising festival of the year is revving its engine! Mark your calendar for Sunday, May 22 (10:00am-2:00pm) and roll out to Canyon Crest Academy in Carmel Valley for an incredible day benefiting toddlers, kids and teens in their fight against cancer.

Haven’t been to Touch A Truck yet? Here’s the deal… You’ll find military and emergency response vehicles, race cars, motorcycles and off-road trucks, construction vehicles of all types, classic cars and trash trucks… even a stage coach and helicopter. This kid-friendly, gearhead extravaganza is a hit with kids of all ages because all of these vehicles are open for you to climb in the drivers seat, honk the horn and meet the men and women who drive them everyday. You’ll also rub elbows with a host of Star Wars characters, play games, enter a raffle, hula hoop to live music from local bands, eat lunch from a food truck (of course!), play laser tag, drink lemonade and go on a scavenger hunt. Yeah… all that!

This year Touch A Truck will limit attendance making this a truly exclusive experience: less people = shorter lines = more time to see, do and explore!

Fundraise for Free Admission and Great Prizes

You have the opportunity to earn free admission and other cool stuff by opening a fundraising page. Your minimum goal of $100 gets you free admission for one child and one adult, with more great stuff as you reach further milestones. You’ll also help us spread awareness about kid’s cancer while you raise money. Buy your tickets here first, then you’ll be prompted to open a fundraising page on Crowdrise. If you have more than one kid, you should open a fundraising page for each one. It’ll all make sense once you get rolling – but we’ll be here to help!
