Hands-on truck show supports cancer research

CARMEL VALLEY — The Touch-A-Truck San Diego fundraiser for childhood cancer research is rolling out from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 4 at Torrey Pines High School, 710 Del Mar Heights Road with the generous help of a host of public-safety, military and vehicle-related businesses.
The interactive display will include vehicles from the U.S. Navy Seals and U.S. Marines Special Operations teams, San Diego Police SWAT team, San Diego Sheriff Search and Rescue, Border Patrol, and the Tumble Gym Bus for toddlers.
In addition, there will be a brand new, unused food truck from Bitchin’ Burgers, so youngsters can safely see what these kitchens-on-wheels look like from the inside. Kids can also see inside a “clean” garbage truck from Daily Disposal, plus hot rods, race cars and low-riders.
The day will also offer slot-car racing, face-painting, custom-beading projects, lemonade and bake sale items, Star Wars characters, and a special $1 raffle to win iPods, Nintendo DSi’s, and spa packages. Local bands Hullabaloo, Hot Rod and the Church Brothers will be performing live.
Purchase tickets online at for $5 per person, 100 percent of the funds raised at Touch A Truck go directly to childhood cancer research.
