Lafayette St between Cape Coral St and Vincennes St Cape Coral, FL, Cape Coral
This is a family friendly event where kids of all ages can explore and ask questions about their favorite vehicles such as Cape Coral Rescue Fire Truck, Lee County Emergency Medical Ambulance, Cape Coral Police BMW Motorcycles, and the Florida Forestry Swamp Buggy just to name a few. All participants will receive a truck passport, and can visit the designated locations for a chance to win a prize. We will also be having a stage with entertainment geared toward children of all ages, health and safety exhibitors, and local vendors and sponsors such as you. Admission is free.
This event was inspired by Ethan, the 6 year old, truck loving, grandson of Steve and Fran Marsino who is affected by Fragile X syndrome. Fragile X is a genetic condition that causes intellectual disability, behavioral and mental health issues, and developmental and language delays. Net proceeds from the 2018 Cape Coral Touch a Truck event will benefit Fragile X awareness and public education, inclusion, and advocacy. Our intent is to participate in future community events, plan future community events and special needs camps/activities, and participate in national advocacy events.
