The Kamloops chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is organizing a new fundraising event called, “Meet a Machine,” which they hope will become an annual event for children, families and adults in our community. It is their plan to secure between 30 and 40 vehicles or machines that kids might be interested in looking at (fire engine, police vehicles/helicopter, Bookmobile, tractor, excavator, motorcycles, local industry machines, rock buggy, antique vehicles, etc.) They are inviting the community to come out and spend a few hours looking at the various vehicles with some ‘on hands’, enjoying food concessions, and participating in other fun activities such as face painting, bouncy castle, music, Native Dancers, etc.
This event is being organized as a Fundraiser for the Kamloops chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Their mission is to cure, better treat and prevent T1D (type 1 diabetes) through the support of research.
JDRF hopes Meet a Machine will become an annual event for children, families and adults in our community, while working in partnership with the Tkemlups te Secwepemc people.
