Date: June 13, 2016

For the third consecutive year, RCF Group is proud to be a sponsor of Food Truckin' for Josh Cares. Now in their fourth year, Food Truckin’ for Josh Cares is a Josh Cares’ Jr. Board-driven event aimed at raising funds for and awareness of the Josh Cares Child Life Program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. With over 15 food trucks to choose from the event has quickly become a signature downtown Cincinnati, Fountain Square event. In 2015, Food Truckin’ for Josh Cares raised close to $40,000 to support the Josh Cares Child Life Program. 

Josh Cares is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that no critically or chronically ill children go through a hospitalization alone, without the support of a parent by their sides when they need it the most.  At any given time, an average of 25+ critically ill children at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are "alone."  Josh Cares funds professionally trained Child Life Specialists who serve as surrogates for, and links to, the families who would be by their sides if they could. The Child Life Department at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center helps children and families have a positive experience during an outpatient visit or hospital stay.
