Just Two Weeks to Touch a Truck!!

Its almost time for Touch a Truck!

What child doesn’t dream about getting behind the wheel of a fire truck, ambulance, bulldozer or a tow truck? Touch a Truck makes this a reality! This unique, interactive event allows families to touch and learn about how a wide variety of businesses and vehicles protect, serve, invest in and build our community, all for just $5.00 a ticket!

The event, which will be held at Cajun Field on April 14, 2018, begins at 10 a.m. and lasts until 2 p.m.

Touch a Truck event will feature a “quiet hour” between 10-11 a.m., allowing children with sensory disorders time to process the event. We want all kids, regardless of any kind of sensory perception issues, to enjoy the event and interact with our local heroes and community partners (After 11 a.m., sirens and other noisy demonstrations will take place).

We were excited to share information about the event on Good Morning Acadiana and you can read the article and view the video about Touch a Truck by clicking here: http://www.katc.com/story/37860751/komen-acadianas-touch-a-truck-event-planned-for-april-14

Where do Komen Acadiana’s fundraising dollars go?

Seventy-five percent (75%) of the net proceeds of the event will remain in our 19 parish service area, and will fund local community grants for screenings, treatment, transportation and patient navigation. To date, Komen Acadiana has donated over 3.4 million dollars in local community grants. The remaining  twenty-five percent (25%) will fund research through a National Research Foundation to ultimately bring about a cure to breast cancer. Komen Acadiana has funded, since 1999, over 1 million dollars in research. Information about the research grants funded can be located here: https://ww5.komen.org/givetoagrant/

Thank you for your support! We are grateful that you are reaching out to support those in our community learn more about early detection and treatment for breast cancer, as well as treatment assistance!
