2016 Touch A Truck
Max’s Ring of Fire recently hosted its annual Touch A Truck fundraiser at Canyon Crest Academy. Twenty-five hundred children, parents, and other community members attended and marveled at – and even sat in – over 70 vehicles, including a 1964 Shelby Cobra, the Mercy Air Ambulance, Wells Fargo stagecoach, and a large excavator. In addition to the wide array of vehicles, there was live entertainment, games, a lemonade stand, food trucks, and Zootopia goodies provided by Universal Studios.
Max’s Ring of Fire is a pediatric cancer fundraising and advocacy organization that supports innovative neuroblastoma research and clinical trials. The foundation was started by Andy and Melissa Mikulak in honor of their late son Max, a pediatric cancer patient. Max’s Ring of Fire works with oncologists and researchers to find potentially live-saving treatments for children with neuroblastoma. This year’s Touch A Truck raised over $42,000 to fund these efforts through the Neuroblastoma and Medulloblastoma Translational Research Consortium. Learn more at www.touchatrucksd.com.
