100% of the money raised at Touch A Truck goes to the NMTRC, a consortium of scientists and oncologists that have research and clinical partnerships around the country, including Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.
Cutting-edge research for kids battling cancer is the reason the NMTRC exists. One of their groundbreaking programs is the country’s first precision-medicine clinical trial that helps the child’s physician choose a treatment tailored to the unique genetic makeup of the patient’s tumor. This type of advanced technology has only been previously available in adult cancers, due to the lack of government and industry funding for childhood cancers.
But with your help, we can give kids and their families hope for the future.

I’m on my third year now [exhibiting my vehicle] and looking foward to next year already!!John - Vehicle Owner
It was such an amazing experience to watch the children’s enjoyment of not only the truck to which I was assigned (John Deere Payloader), but of the event as a whole. I couldn’t think of a better cause and I would love to be a part of the future events.Andrea - Volunteer
I could not believe that you had a helicopter land! And then we got to get in it! Awesome!Evan - Attendee, Age 9
I do a lot of car shows during the year and the way you have us come to be parked the day of the show is outstanding. The different classifications checking in at different times instead of all together is great!Mike - Vehicle Owner
